In this course, you will get an overview of how software teams work? What processes they use? What are some of the industry standard methodologies? What are pros and cons of each? You will learn enough to have meaningful conversation around software development processes. After completing this course, a learner will be able to 1) Apply core software engineering practices at conceptual level for a given problem. 2) Compare and contrast traditional, agile, and lean development methodologies at high level.

Good Introductory course. The content is concise and gives a broad overview. The assignments and quizzes are formulated very well, through which one gets a good conceptual challenge. I recommend the course for anyone looking to get familiar with the basic jargon of software development.

While this course is informative, I would not say it is truly for beginners, especially when it comes to the peer-graded assignments. I am new to supporting a Digital team, and while development is not my role, I enrolled in this course to give me a better grasp of the process. The peer-graded assignments are too in-depth for beginners considering the depth of the content provided. Some of the quiz questions were confusing or didn't track back to the information provided in the videos. Overall, it was informative and an okay class for an introduction to core concepts, and I think it would have more value for someone with at least a little bit of software dev experience. For true beginners, it can be frustrating.

I liked the part about project management: interesting, many practical examples and use cases.

I disliked the technical part about the software design and architecture. I had to use many additional resources in order to pass the final quiz. The videos didn't explained the topics clear enough for me.

My expectations about this course were high so I'm a bit disappointed.

Thanks for sharing such a valuable and detail information. As a PM, I implemented an Incremental Model for the development of the opportunity (Sales) during RFQ process. And My team won a business for almost 1 Mil. Eur. So it works, and not only in a SW dev. as well as in Industry. Looking forward to change whole PM system in the company. Stay healthy and keep learning!

Really great overview. I did think the lectures in week 4 could use one more round of editing. Sometimes the professor seemed to stumble over what he was saying and I had to go back a few times to make sure I understood. The quizes and peer graded assignments reinforced learning well

when instructors share their own real life experiences, to relate with on going process and when real wold scenarios are used explain Software Development Model (SDM), it makes easier for me who have very little knowledge subject.

A very tough course compared to similar ones on the platform.

Very decent quizzes and peer tasks! Highly recommend it!

These guys made it fun and easy to follow through although the subject is far from being an easy one.

Really learnt a lot from the instructors. Videos are easy to follow with clear examples. Peer review was challenging at first (never done before) but I eventually got the hang of it. Can't wait for the next course.

This course introduced why SDLC is a fundamental skill worth learning. Step by step tutorials helps to learn quickly through each exercise. I would certainly take more online courses from these teachers.

Thank you

Excellent everything! The time, the explanations, the videos, the tests and the practical works. It would be perfect if it had a PDF with the relevant information, I'm not saying all of it, but a summary guide

very good course learns a lot of agile methodologies, knowing what are the primary and secondary requirements and the time between sprinting and each method as it uses them.

The course is great!

There are small problems with subtitles, but in general, knowledge is given sequentially and provides a good basis for studying SDLC.

Thank you!
