TDDC88 / TDDC93 - Software Engineering (Ht1-Ht2 2013)

2014‑09‑19  Don't copy-and-paste

Hi, I have been reviewing exercise 2 and found that a few of you seem to first copy texts from the source and then try to re-write the texts a bit. This is not a good method, you shall first read the sources and then write your own, independent text based on the synthesis you make of the texts of the sources. Otherwise you might fail learning the subject as thorough as intended. Tweaking copied texts makes it impossible to prove that the text is illegal, but this does not mean that the text is good. The exercises are not long documents so a few sentences is a large percentage. - But many of the texts are really great!

2014‑09‑19  Extra lecture

Slides used: test and configuration mgmnt. I plan to be finished before 16.30, and then we going to talk about UML.

2014‑09‑16  Extra lecture

Some students of TDDC88 and 725G64 found difficulties in the synchronization between the lab schedule and the lecture schedule. For that reason, I will give a quick walk-through of the background of Software Configuration Management and Unit testing on Friday 19 September at 15.15 in C4. With careful reading and doing the lab, this would replace the first 45 mins of lecture 9, and the lecture 10 (which is only 45 minutes). This is completely voluntarily, and lectures 9 and 10 will be given according to the planned schedule. I plan to be finished before 16.30, so there is time for general questions after that.

2014‑09‑15  Exam show

The retake exam 2014-08-21 is shown 2014-09-16, 12:30-13:30 in Kristian Sandahl's office.

There are three parts of the course package:

parts and codes

The theory part is a 4 hp course with lectures and a written exam. There are optional lecture exercises that can give extra credits on the written exam. Included for course codes TDDC88, TDDC93, and 725G64.

The laboratory work is 2 hp and will support the theory with practical examples of software engineering tools and important software solutions. 24 hours are scheduled in the laboratory and you get examined by showing the work to the assistant. Included for course codes TDDC88 and 725G64.

The project is performed in groups of about 30 students each, during the entire semester. Each such group is called a company and there will be 4 companies in 2014 making software for a customer. All groups make the same software for the same customer. The goal of the project is that students will get experience from software engineering challenges, that can be useful in the "real world" after graduation. The grade for this 6 hp part is calculated both on the performance of the company and the individual.

NOTE! This course requires active participation in the project work including presence in meetings. In our present block schedule, most of these meetings occur on Thursdays after lunch each week. To be able to be part of this course we have a hard registration deadline: September 12. You must be both registered on the course AND member of one of the project teams at that date. If not, you will not be able to participate in course in 2014.

TDDC88/725G64 - Software Engineering, 12 hp (I, Ii, MT, CS, ACG, SVP)

TDDC88 consists of all parts: Theory, lab, and project.

Students from SVP use the code 725G64 in their curriculum, but the course work is identical to TDDC88.

TDDC93 - Software Engineering Theory, 4 hp. (For C, D, IT, U)

The course TDDC93 covers only the theory part, i.e. TDDC93 does not contain any project work or laboratory exercises.

TDDD69 - Software Engineering - Company Project, 6hp (For D, IT, U)

The course TDDD69 is for students studying the double-degree program International Software Engineering. The course consists only of the project part.

Examiner for all courses is Kristian Sandahl. For questions, please contact Kristian directly.

Welcome to the course!
