- 16 weeks
- 3 credits
- Prerequisite(s): (BUS-K303 or BUS-K304) and (BUS-S302 or BUS-S355) all with a grade of C or higher
This course focuses on the development of the prototype of a digital solution for a business case, following an Agile approach. After covering the fundamental concepts of Agile development, the course employs a business case throughout the course, leading to the creation of an implementable design of a new system. First, students create a series of diagrams specifying the requirements, data, and processes used in the digital solution. Later, students use those models to create a front-end prototype for the digital solution, following an Agile approach. The course ends by publishing the new system on a web server, making it part of each student’s digital portfolio. Topics include: Scrum, Unified Modeling Language (UML), web development languages and tools such as HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap, which is used to create a responsive system. Students also learn and use an Agile management tool (e.g., Jira) to manage the solution they are developing.
