Jackson Structured Programming - Advanced


This intensely practical three-day course provides attendees with the knowledge and skills to use the advanced features of the Jackson Structured Programming methodology to design and evaluate program solutions before coding, thereby further reducing the time spent examining, testing and correcting completed code.

This course is available 'on demand' (minimum 2 students) for public presentations or for one-company, on-site presentations.

Objectives

On successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  • use the advanced features of the Jackson Structured Programming methodology to design logical program solutions effectively
  • design and apply appropriate test data to the chosen design
  • convert the solution design accurately into program code.
