This course presents hands-on labs in the software aspect for students to be familiar with software design and development processes. The class follows a mainstream of building a useful mobile app under selected topics. We introduce some important software design concepts and development tools.
The class is divided into three parts. In the first part, we guide students to identify user needs and design core features. In the second part, we will teach fast prototyping and feedback analysis. Finally, we talk about how to make the software intelligent by introducing some basic AI and machine learning concepts.
This course requires students to have solid understanding of
