Course description

The course intends to provide advanced concepts for object-oriented programming. It is divided into two main parts:
# Object oriented programming
      - Object Oriented Programming (OOP)
      - Practical Tutorials in Java Language
# Methodologies of analysis and design oriented to
      - Object Oriented Analysis (OOA)
       - Object Oriented Design (OOD)

Knowledge and understanding skills
The student should demonstrate the knowledge and the understanding the basics of the procedural ​and Object Oriented (OO) programming languages. In particular, it should be able to develop and to analyze methodologies and algorithms for both C and C ++ languages. The student should have the ability to understand new Java language-based software development methodologies and techniques.

Application skills
The student should demonstrate his/her acquired knowledge for solving real problems by using the Java language. It also should demonstrate the ability to develop and to analyze algorithms complexity and software validation by using Design Pattern and "Agile" programming principles. The student should be able to use and to choice libraries and software systems for the principal application areas, and in particular for the design and analysis of Web Applications.

Judgment autonomy
The student should be able to know how to independently evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of a software application in real cases.

Communication skills
The student must be able to write a report and a presentation on a software application made by using Design Patterns, OO programming principles and the Java language. The application is developed on topical issues in computer science and presents moments of group work. For these reasons the student should demonstrate abilties on these themes.

Ability to learn
The student should be able to autonomously deepening Java-specific topics and applications, such as accessing databases and online software repositories, and other modes available from the network. The student should be able to participate in forums for the continuous updating of knowledge in computer science.
