OO Design and Modeling in an Agile World

Course Summary

The OO Design and Modeling in an Agile World training course is designed to demonstrate Object-Oriented (OO) design and modeling using Agile.

The course begins with a set of high-level stories and deconstruction of those stories. Next, it explores the designs and models of OO in a Socratic fashion and in teams. The course concludes by presenting the findings and research to contribute to the Socratic discussions.

Prerequisites: Prior training and/or experience with Agile practices is required. Some knowledge of Scrum, OO, and Unified Modeling Language (UML) is helpful.
