Introduction to OOAD

Introduction to Object Oriented Analysis and Design Training

The Introduction to OOAD training course is a follow up course to the Introduction to OO Programming course. Introduction to OOAD training explores advanced OO concepts, like multiple inheritance, polymorphism, inner classes, etc. by building on the core OO concepts. The course then transitions from concept theory into object oriented design pratices. 

The course also examines design strategies such as noun-verb decomposition, User stories, Use Cases, CRC Cards, 4+1 architectural view, etc.

Introduction to OOAD can be combined with Introduction to Object Oriented Programming to create a 5-day course. It can also be taught to support a variety of languages, including Java, PHP, C#, C++, Ruby, and others.
