Spring 2019 not offered
|Course Cluster: Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor, Service Learning|
This course provides an introduction to the processes and tools of software engineering: the design, development, testing, and maintenance of large software systems. The course is based on the Berkeley MOOC "Software Engineering as a Service" and uses on-line material from the MOOC to provide some of the course content.
The first part of the course will cover developing software in teams as well as learning the languages and tools used in the course, including Ruby, Rails, Cucumber, RSpec, Pivotal Tracker, and gitHub.
The second part of the course will continue to present software engineering concepts but will also focus on developing a team service-learning software development project for an external customer.
