Introduction to the course: Rationale
• This course is not a regular “introduction to programming” course.
• Regular programming courses teach how to use a particular programming
•
•
•
•
•
•
language to implement programs.
This course assumes that the students already know how to program.
Industrial programming makes use of many more tools than the actual
programming language.
This course aims at improving the effectiveness of the act of programming.
It is meant to teach various concepts/tools/techniques used in the process of
programming.
It aims at enabling students to:
• Be more efficient in their programming tasks
• Be more effective team workers in software development
• Be more aware of quality in software development
This course aims at an audience well-trained in computer programming and
putting the newly acquired knowledge into practice through a challenging
project.

Introduction to the course: Project
• The project is to be undertaken small teams (typically 5 members) and consists of
the building of a challengingly large and complex Java application.
• The completion of the project is divided into two separate components:
• (1) the First and Second Intermediate Project Deliveries are intermediate
operational builds of the software, effectively demonstrating the full
implementation of some important software features;
• (2) the Final Project Delivery is the demonstration of the finalized version of
your software.
• During the project deliveries, you also have to demonstrate that your code
includes many of the Java features presented in the lectures.
• The individual assignments will also be related to the project.
