Learning objectives:
  To understand the process of software development in teams and to get acquaint with real applications that help creating and documenting component-based projects, to learn how to easily prototype graphical user interfaces, what are preconditions of successful free software and usability measurement.
  Fundamentals of unix philosophy and their use in programming, the role of code testing and the test-driven development, component-oriented code, performance issues, profiling, distributed version management, parallel computing, big data, practical experience of software teams.
Subject specific learning outcomes and competences:
  Students will get acquainted with modern approaches to software development, having successfully completed the course, students will be able to take part in teams developing shared code, will know the tools helping the development of efficient and well-documented code as well as applications better reflecting the users needs.
Generic learning outcomes and competences:
  Students will learn to work on projects. They will also improve their knowledge on modern development and documenting tools.
