Aims and objectivesOne way of improving software productivity and quality is by using software tools. Unfortunately studies have shown that in most cases the acquired software tools are either not used or only partly used. Therefore in this course we shall examine a mix of fundamentals (software engineering activities and tools) and practical hands-on knowledge on software tools. A combination of tools breadth and depth approach will be used covering in depth most important tools for testing and software configuration management, and a breadth of various tools.
