Training - UML

A planned approach to creating software architecture with UML

To enable you to plan new systems with foresight and flexibility, we teach you UML (Unified Modelling Language) in this training course. You will learn the procedures of a software architect, from task definition and communication to software design and reverse engineering.

The training is structured as a workshop in which all participants are intensively trained and receive many exercises. You will learn the types of diagrams most commonly used in practice. Guidance on their own designs and practical application. In addition, proper analysis of existing systems and an explanation of how many details are necessary are included in the training, as well as practical exercises of individual solutions and the use of existing design patterns.
