From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:38 pm

Entry level BA -> Junior BA -> intermediate BA -> senior BA -> advanced generalist BA

this is how you start and go on along you way in a BA career path

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:31 pm

A BA should be a good listener more than they are able to talk.
Negotiation, leadership and team work are the competencies as well.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:28 pm

Creative thinking
Decision making
learning
problem solving
system thinking

are the core competencies one should have in a BA. – Methmi

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:26 pm

Where do BAs work?
A: Actually anywhere.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:23 pm

BA are supposed to go to the customer and are paid by the IT organization. This is knowledge area.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:21 pm

There are compliance requirements where you have to keep paper-works for 3 years.

BA should be able to give you facts rather than giving you opinions. – Methimi

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:18 pm

To bridge this disconnection, we have this new profession.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:18 pm

The customer speaks one language and developers speak another. – Methimi

The topic she is about to talk is ‘business analysis as a lucrative career’

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:07 pm

Polymorphism is where another superclass acts as a base class.

With that note Sanka concludes.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20144:03 pm

Even if there are many super classes, a sub class only can inherit from its base class. – Sanka

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:59 pm

Inheritance is when a class inherits properties from the base class. – Sanka

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:57 pm

A sub class can access all the public methods of a main class.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:51 pm

Sanka says he will show us some coding or else this is going to be a boring session. His words, now ours. :P

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:49 pm

If there is a private method, only that particular class can access it. no sub class can either. it is kind of protected.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:46 pm

OOP is a language based on an object.

Encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism are included support in the language.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:44 pm

Every object has action and behavior. In programming language it is called method.

Interface is a class. a kind of. it can have properties. – Sanka

Classes can optionally be declared as static, abstract and sealed.

Sanka goes on explaining further about this.

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:40 pm

A class defined the template of an object just like a bluprint. – Sanka

From Press From Press Mar 14, 20143:38 pm

An object usually is something which exists.
It has data. Performs an action. Is a concept. – Sanka
