This subject introduces students to the fundamentals of contemporary software development. This subject covers the theoretical and practical aspects of software modelling and development methods, tools, and techniques. In this subject, students learn how to analyse, design, develop and evaluate software programs that implement realistic but manageably small-scale software requirements. Student learning is supported via online lectures and facilitated practical workshops (tutorial/laboratory) sessions. Peer learning and collaboration are also encouraged within and outside the classroom, however, each student must complete their individual and group tasks. The primary objective is that students experience, understand the importance of, and can apply foundational software development practices.
