Object-Oriented Analysis & Design using UML  Course

Object Orientation, or OO, is a methodology that can be used during the whole software development life cycle: from analysis of users' needs, to design and then coding and testing. The Unified Modelling Language (UML) is an international set of diagrams for modelling your system using an object-oriented approach.

This course will teach you how to analyse, design and document your system using established OO principles. It will help you to understand the problem and the solution better, communicate it more effectively and guide you to write better code.

Duration: 5 days. Courses are presented from 08:30 to 16:30.
Investment: R10,900.00 excluding VAT per delegate. Prices valid from 1 February 2018.
Venue: The Incus Data Training Venue in Centurion, Pretoria. Courses can also be presented on-site for 5 or more delegates.
Dates: Please check the course schedule for the next available date. You can also contact us at tel: (+27) 12 666 2020 or email us at info@incusdata.com to find out about dates.

Audience: Is This The Right Course For Me?

You should attend the Object Oriented Analysis and Design using UML course if:

  • You are a programmer moving to an object-oriented language, like Java.
  • You are a programmer using an object-oriented language, but want to understand and use object-oriented principles more effectively.
  • You are a system analyst or designer, and you need to design object-oriented systems.
  • You are a system architect, and you need to understand how to design and create object-oriented systems.

Prerequisites: Am I Ready For The Course?

Before you attend the Object Oriented Analysis and Design using UML course:

  • You should have some experience in programming, ideally in an object-oriented language like Java, C# or C++.

If you are a business analyst and have little or no programming experience, then you should attend the Object-Oriented Analysis course which runs as the first 3 days of this course.

Please ensure you meet the prerequisites for the Object-Oriented Analysis & Design using UML Course before you attend the course. Read the importance of course prerequisites to understand why this is necessary.
