Software Engineering Training Crash Course

Software engineering is a branch of computing science that is all about the systematic application of engineering approaches to the development of software.

Over the past couple of decades, software engineering education has been emerging as an independent and mature discipline in parallel with the field’s increased responsibilities and evolutionary tasks.

Before the mid-1970s, software practitioners called themselves computer programmers or software developers, regardless of their actual jobs.

Today, a software engineer is a person who applies the principles of software engineering to the design, development, maintenance, testing and evaluation of the software that make computers or other devices containing software work.

U.S. News has called software developer positions the No. 1 best job in the United States. Their work touches nearly every corner of our lives.

The U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics counted 1,365,500 software developers holding jobs in the U.S. in 2018. Employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

These occupations are projected to add about 557,100 new jobs. Demand for these workers will stem from greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, and information security.

For the software engineer there’s opportunity. For instance, edge computing is becoming more prevalent, and it’s imperative for engineers to get in on the action.

Edge computing is computing that’s done at or near the source of the data, instead of relying on the cloud at one of a dozen data centers to do all the work. It doesn’t mean the cloud will disappear but rather it means the cloud is coming to us.

An edge-oriented system needs someone who understands how everything fits together. Edge devices, computer networks, and software systems each have specific resource constraints, and the quality of their interactions will improve or degrade overall system effectiveness.

Possibly the trendiest work today is in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) applications. It’s a buzzword that gets thrown around a lot, but it’s not because artificial intelligence (AI) is being overhyped — it’s because modern technology is finally powerful enough to make AI tools a reality.

Whether it’s through deep learning, machine learning or broader artificially intelligent applications, organizations are depending on AI to fundamentally transform their industries.

From retail to healthcare, the future of software development — and the future of technology as we know it — lies within algorithms, big data and sophisticated AI tools to draw new and fascinating conclusions.

Software Engineering Training Crash Course by Tonex

Software engineering training teaches you the advanced software engineering topics and provides you with the discipline to apply engineering and computer science concepts in the development, maintenance, usability and dependability of the software.

This course covers a variety of topics in software engineering such as introduction to software engineering, software investigation and analysis, software design, software implementation and management, requirement analysis and engineering, software development process life cycle, and software development processes.

Additionally, you will be introduced to socio-technical systems, software system architecture, dependability and security engineering, software project planning and management, dependability and security assurance, software system configuration management, software system quality management, agile software system engineering, software verification and validation, software construction and distributed software systems.

By taking the software engineering training by Tonex, you will learn about present software engineering concepts as well as principles in parallel with the software development life cycle.

This training will begin with an introduction to software engineering, giving you a definition of the body of knowledge, as well as a discussion of the main methodologies of software engineering. The next step is to introduce the software development life cycle (SDLC) followed by software modeling using unified modeling language (UML), a standardized general purpose languages used to create visual models of object oriented software. Moreover, you will learn about the main phases of SDLC: requirements gathering, requirement analysis, design, coding, and testing.

If you are an IT professional who specialize in software engineering, you will benefit from the presentations, examples, case studies, discussions, and individual activities upon the completion of the software engineering training and will prepare yourself for your career.

Learn about artifacts and approaches to develop the software systems, software engineering metrics, distributed, configurable and object oriented software. Moreover, you will learn about alignment of software systems with overall system design, software unique aspects of planning, requirements, architecture analysis, implementation, testing and maintenance, important of software engineering constraints, security and technology trends in software engineering.
