Chris Nicholls

The City lecturers were first class; knowledgeable, patient and thorough. My course modules complemented each other well, examining software at varying levels of detail: the broader socio-economic picture, the user perspective, high-level architecture, detailed design, as well as the coding itself. This course fundamentally changed the way I approach software development, and has equipped me with a set of techniques and principles that I use daily in my professional life.
