As technology becomes more critical for businesses across all industries, the need for innovative software and engineers to develop it grows. Software engineering is a highly sought-after profession and getting a master's degree in software engineering can give you an edge over your peers.
At the University of Bolton, we offer an MSc Software Engineering degree that provides students with cutting-edge knowledge and skills to develop innovative software solutions for public and private organisations. If you’re a computing graduate looking to expand your academic knowledge with a master’s degree, there are a few hidden gems that you need to be aware of. Let’s explore some!
Jenkins is an open-source automation server designed for automating repetitive tasks such as building, testing and deploying software applications. It helps automate processes so developers can focus on writing great code instead of wasting time on manual tasks.
Many organisations, including Netflix, Apple, and Etsy, use Jenkins to continuously release software by interacting with testing and deployment methods.
2. IntelliJ IDEA
IntelliJ IDEA is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) used for building applications in languages such as Java, Kotlin, Python, and Go. It provides many valuable features that help developers be productive and write better code faster.
Companies like LinkedIn and Adobe widely use IntelliJ as it provides static code analysis to help find bugs, detect performance problems, and deal with dead code to simplify the coding structure.
Appium is an open-source automation tool for mobile app testing on iOS and Android platforms. Appium allows developers to write tests in any language they are familiar with, including NodeJS, Ruby, C++, etc., making it an excellent choice for teams who want to use their existing automation frameworks.
Popular organisations such as Airbnb and Amazon have adopted Appium for testing their mobile applications.
Jira is issue-tracking software developers use to plan, track, and manage tasks and projects. Jira helps teams collaborate more efficiently and quickly resolve bugs, making it a popular choice among many companies like eBay and Dropbox.
Git is a developer's version control system that tracks changes in the source code over time. It allows teams to collaborate on projects and keep records of their progress, making it easier for them to go back and forth between different versions of their codebase.
Companies like Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon rely on Git for managing their source codes as it helps them easily maintain large projects with multiple contributors.
