Lab Agile Software Development 2009a

Prof. Dr. Armin B. Cremers, Dr. Günter Kniesel, Holger Mügge, Pascal Bihler und Mark Schmatz


Agile software development, teamwork and efficiency, as known from eXtreme Programming (XP), are the focus of this practical lab. Base techniques to achieve this goal are customer-orientated planning, short development iterations, pair programming, automated testing and refactoring. This lab affords the opportunity to gather practical knowledge of XP and other techniques of agile software development. Every participant is important for the success of the project, which will be developed by the small team within four and a half weeks.

This lab is part of the International Program of Excellence (IPEC) of the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (b-it). The curriculum offered by IPEC addresses a limited number of highly gifted students, who are enrolled in the University of Bonn, the RWTH Aachen, or in other German or foreign universities. This results in a speed-up of studying and in a simultaneous increase of quality. Due to the limited number of participants and the high standard of the program, a pre-selection of participants is required.

For Diplom-students at Bonn University: This is a Hauptstudiumsveranstaltung. If you are enrolled in the "Neue DPO" program, you are required to own either the Vordiplom or at least 50% of the Vordiploms-Leistungspunkts and less than 50% of the Hauptdiplom-Leistungspunkts.

This lab addresses students from the RWTH Aachen and the University of Bonn, but as well students enrolled in the programs of Media Informatics or Life Science at B-IT. Therefore, the lab will be conducted in English as soon as at least one English-speaking student is participating.
