41194 IS Implementation Studio

6cp; 3hpw, on campus
Requisite(s): 41193 IS Data Visualisation Studio

Fields of practice: Information Systems



This studio subject provides an opportunity for students to apply their IS knowledge and skills to a real-life problem. Students assemble a team to explore the problem space of their choice, developing a prototype application that addresses a complex, compelling problem in an area such as business intelligence, smart infrastructure, or sustainability.

Students are asked to pitch the problem that they would like to address and the application they would like to build to address it. Small groups of students are formed around the most promising ideas. These groups apply agile software development practices to design and develop vertical prototypes of both the back-end (i.e. server side) and front-end (i.e. client side) of their application.

This subject is intended to provide aspiring analysts and architects with hands-on experience of what it is like to be embedded in an agile project team. It is designed to be accessible to students who plan to work closely with software development teams, but may not be highly confident or competent coders themselves. Consequently, a somewhat “on-rails” experience is provided that focuses on adapting an existing code-base rather than developing software from scratch. Nevertheless, students are expected to have a solid foundation of object-oriented software development skills (see prerequisites), and should expect to stretch their coding skills throughout this subject.
