Seminars at the Faculty of Informatics

Large Scale Project Courses

The Faculty of Informatics is pleased to announce a seminar given by Professor Bernd Bruegge

DATE: Monday, May 10th 2010
PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room A13 red building (Via G. Buffi 13)
TIME: 14:30

ABSTRACT:
In this talk I describe a teaching methodology that allows to build large scale applications with up to 60 undergraduate students within a single semester. The students are exposed to real problems formulated by real customers. They have to produce and deliver a solution within the duration of a single semester. Recently we have used this methodology to the development of iPhone Apps addressing software engineering as well as usability engineering issues.  Cases studies from past projects are presented to demonstrate the wide spectrum of this approach, in particular projects with the Munich airport and the Bavarian Symphony orchestra.
