Introduction of OOP Analysis and Design Course
During spring 2013, I deliver the OOP Analysis & Design course in Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. This course is delivered as part of Shenkar’s Software Engineering B.Sc. Academic Program. The course starts with covering the main UML diagrams, continues with a deep coverage for the classic design patterns in object oriented programming and concludes with advance topics including aspect oriented programming and software development principles such as single responsibility, liskov substitution and dependency inversion.
UML tools to use in the course
There are many UML tools out there in the market. Unfortuneately, only few of them were developed in accordance with the official UML specifications that OMG maintains. Astah is one of them.
Why I chose Astah Professional for students
The intutitive user interface and the excellent implementation for the UML specification are the main reasons for selecting Astah for my students.
