Course Description

Programming Studio 2 is an intermediate studio-based course that focuses on the further acquisition and development of technical and professional skills for computing. The studio-based approach provides an authentic problem setting. Theory and practice are blended in the application of learning centred on e.g., development of game or web applications. In this course you will develop programming principles, skills and practices for modern software development, continuing the study of design, development and testing from previous courses. These learning outcomes will be achieved by developing a medium-sized real world application.
