|May 3, 2018||Course Review|
Software methods and tools are extensively used in current software production to improve software productivity and quality. In this course, we are going to learn a number of popular software methods and tools being used in academia or industry. These methods include object-oriented design and analysis, architecture styles, unit testing, and version control. The covered software tools include Microsoft Project, IBM Rational Modeler, Eclipse Plug-ins, ArchStudio, JUnit, Subversion, and GIT. The course emphasizes practice, and students will be using these methods and tools to develop a software system, from initial planning to final deployment.
A primary goal of this course is to increase students' skills of using software methods and tools as software engineers. The course also helps students further understand the roles that software methods and tools play in software development. The course consists of three parts: lectures, labs, and assignments. Each is briefly described below.
Lectures. Lectures will be given on a regular basis with slides provided. They will be focused on details of the included software methods, and related concepts and background information of the included tools. Class attendance is mandatory, and students are highly encouraged to participate in class discussion.
Labs. There will be nine in-class labs in this course. They are primarily about how to use the included software tools. In each lab, students will use a specific tool to finish a number of tasks, following the tutorials prepared by the instructor. These tasks address the essential parts of the following assignment. The purpose is to get students ready to work on their assignments.
Assignments. The assignments of this course are to develop a software system with the help of the methods and tools students are going to learn. Each assignment covers a specific development phase (e.g. initial planning, requirements analysis, and design), and requires the use of different methods and tools. Students work individually on all the assignments. Each assignment is graded independently.
Final Exam: 30%
