Software Engineering Training Bootcamp

IEEE, in its standard 610.12-1990, defines software engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined, which is a computable approach for the development, operation and maintenance of software.

Software engineering is a process of analyzing user requirements and then designing, building, and testing software application which will satisfy that requirements

No matter how you define software engineering, it’s surging popularity is undeniable. Three reasons for the popularity of software engineering: scalability, adaptability and cost.

Scalability because if the software development process were based on scientific and engineering concepts, it is easier to re-create new software to scale an existing one.

Adaptability because whenever the software process is based on scientific and engineering, it is easy to re-create new software with the help of software engineering.

Cost-wise,  software engineering can save organizations money in a number of ways, including:

  • Automating manual processes
  • Creating custom, real-time business reports
  • Keeping you from buying the wrong software
  • Analyzing your business data
  • Reducing risk by identifying potential problems

Increased market demands for fast turnaround time is the biggest challenges of software engineering field. Additional demands include:

  • Dealing with the increased complexity of software required in new applications
  • The diversity of software systems that need to communicate/operate with each other
  • The need to develop trustworthy software
  • The quest for increased efficiency in component-based reuse and automatic code

At the core of software engineering is the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Also known as the software engineering paradigm, SDLC is the development strategy that encompasses the software process, methods and tools.

SDLC describes the period of time that starts with the software system being conceptualized and ends with the software system being discarded after usage.

Improving software engineering skills can be very beneficial for professionals other than software engineers.

For example, project managers with sharpened IT skills can better understand the projects and improve communications with the software engineers creating the projects.

It’s helpful for project managers in an IT environment to the learn the basics of programming. When you learn to code, your coding ability gives a new perspective to problem-solving. Understanding logic, at a deep level, improves problem-solving proficiency tenfold.

When you understand programming, you understand how to tell a computer to carry out a set of logical steps to reach a required outcome. When you learn to code, you will understand how to direct your team using this problem-solving skill you have learn to reach your required outcome.

Software engineering is an engineering branch associated with development of software product using well-defined scientific principles, methods and procedures. The outcome of software engineering should be an efficient and reliable software product.

Software engineers are invaluable especially since it’s not unusual for problems to arise when a software exceeds timelines, budgets or has a reduced level of quality. The software engineer ensures that the application is built consistently, correctly, on time and on budget and within requirements.

Demand for software engineering has also increased to cater to the immense rate of change in user requirements and environment on which application is supposed to be working.

As technology marches on to new challenges, advances in software accompany new architectures.

At this time in history, there are many on the verge technological breakthroughs that will have a profound impact on software engineers.

One of those areas is edge and cloud computing use. There is also expected to be major advances in programming languages. There has been a shift away from the monolithic languages of the past so that developers are now enabled to work with specialized languages that focus more on developer ergonomics and modernized developments in hardware.

Experts report that software based around artificial intelligence (AI) applications will also continue to dominate. Although artificial intelligence has been around for many years, it continues to grow and enhance every year, becoming foundational to many technologies around the world. Developers predict that AI will continue to dominate as more industries adopt it in their infrastructures.

Software Engineering Training Bootcamp Course by Tonex

Software Engineering Training, is a 3-day intensive covering many aspects of software engineering including Software Requirements, Definition, Development, Validation and Verification and Management Training.

Software Engineering Training customized as “Software Requirements, Definition, Development & Management Training” course is intended for those wishing to learn about the best software engineering practices. The course provides a practical introduction to software development and specifically methods to elicit, analyze, define and manage requirements.

Learn about software requirements analysis, software delivery cycles, software development with changing stakeholders and requirements, management and process control. Learn about traditional and agile methods and how to deliver software in time-boxed iterations, manage requirements and prioritize work to satisfy stakeholders. Software Engineering Training teaches you about the technical best practices, and how, in a changing environment, to communicate and manage requirements.

After discussing the foundations of software requirements, students will learn about requirements elicitation, discovery and management. IEEE Std 830-1998, Recommended Practice for Software Requirements Specifications is used as a reference.
