This unit complements other software design units in the Bachelor of Information Technology programme. Design units focus on techniques of software design for software systems so they can fulfil client requirements. However, students must develop and demonstrate coding skills in order to implement a given design. SIT323 will extend students’ skills in implementation so that a given implementation is carried out to professional standards. Concepts on advanced techniques of implementation covered in this unit, set in the modern context of .NET-like environments, databases and the Internet will allow students to acquire skills required to write industrial-strength code.
