TDDD05 Component-Based Software
Course bookComponent Software, Beyond Object-Oriented Programming, second edition, by Clemens Szyperski. Addison-Wesley, 2002. ISBN 0-201-74572-0. Not mandatory reading in 2018.
Most chapters of the Szyperski book will be covered by the lectures, at least at some degree. It also serves as background reading, providing more details on some of the topics that can not be treated exhaustively in the lectures. Chapters 2, 3, 18, 19, 26, 27, 28 are not included in the course. Moreover, there are some lectures that are not covered by the book. Please note that aspect-oriented programming and model-driven engeneering will not be covered by the course this year, but the references are left for those interested.
Lecture slidesLecture slides will be uploaded here after each lecture.
