Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to choose the suitable tools for each phase of the implementation process. They will be able to define the toolchain for a software project, configure its development environment, and implement an automatic build process. They will be able to explain the basic functions of different programming tools and use them for a specific programming language Students will be capable of describing the structure of program libraries and frameworks and will be able to create them themselves or integrate them into their own projects. They will be able to use integrated development environments for software development.
