This highly practical course will develop the skills you need to produce data or class models.
To develop enterprise-strength software applications that support the strategic organisational goals you need to build models of the information architecture. Throughout a software development project these models are continually refined until they become database structures. Modern approaches such as agile modelling and domain-driven design emphasise the importance of building models early in the development process with business users.
