Course Description

Software requirements refer to required features and functions of software products during planning. Without a thorough understanding of requirements, projects have little hope of being successful. In this 13-video course, learners explore fundamentals of software requirements, including approaches to discovering and defining requirements, and how to transition from requirements to vision, organizational processes, and user stories. Key concepts covered here include elements making up the requirements engineering process; appropriate types of stakeholders to help determine software requirements; and methods for gathering stakeholder demands and turning them into requirements. Learn about best practices for turning requirements into software specifications that are complete, concise, correct, consistent, testable, and unambiguous; recognize techniques to help prioritize features, and determine the MVP (minimum viable product) and what can be delayed to future sprints; and learn tips and tricks to identify hidden requirements and to create a requirements traceability matrix. Finally, learn how to approach requirements planning for application programming interface (API) development; learn effective use of requirements engineering applied to software development lifecycles; and learn how to validate software requirements.
