Learning Outcomes

Students are able to… - differentiate and apply approaches to agile project management in software development - know and understand methods, tools and frameworks for continuous delivery of software artefacts - practically apply continuous delivery/deployment in modern, cloud-based software systems - present and discuss advanced concepts and technologies


The course focuses on building, deploying and operating service-oriented software system architectures, providing in-depth knowledge on technical concepts, methods, and technologies. The course teaches state-of-the-art in both agile project management and continuous delivery / continuous deployment (covered in lectures and a programming project exercise) and also explores more recent advancements from industry and academia (in the form of a research seminar). Topics include agile methods, DevOps, test automation, infrastructure and tooling for continuous software engineering.
