授業の概要
/Course outline
Students will develop software for real-world customers in teams and through the process deepen their understanding of software engineering.
In this course, each student team will receive a development request from a real customer. On average each team will consist of 5-10 students. Teams will start from listening to customers to request and defining requirements of the software. This will be followed by design, development, and test phases, and on Week 14, each team will present their project activity as well as the completed software, and finally deliver the software to the customer.
Professional software engineers will support each team as coaches to advice on practical development tasks. Every week, each team will report their progress to the coaches and lecturers. Meetings with customers will be held as required. The phases of the development will be controlled by specific deliverables that must be submitted in order to advance to the next phase. Teams will present at two review meetings (interim and final) where they must quantitatively analyze project work hours, accomplishments, and quality.
In order to deliver software that best satisfies customer requirements, including both functional and quality requirements, utmost creativity and effort is imperative. A considerable amount of outside classroom hours are spent to acquire necessary knowledge and skills as well as to revise work. Furthermore, self-motivated and proactive involvement by all members of the team is essential for a successful delivery.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
1. The student understands the challenges related to developing software with specific functional and quality requirements, and the basic methods in solving them.
2. The student understands the necessity of project management in order to develop software under limited resources (people, time, equipment) , and experience the various methods related to each stage of development (requirements definition, design, development, test).
3. The student understands the need to quickly act in an uncertain real-world environment, such as identifying multi-disciplinary problems and accurate communication of information, and will learn basic methods.
Overall, the student will understand the difficulties (and rewards!) of developing practical software of respectable size.

授業の概要
/Course outline
Concurrent programs take advantage of modern multicore and multiprocessor machines to implement algorithms that run concurrently (in parallel) to achieve higher performance and better user experience. Distributed computing brings this idea to the next level, dealing with the systems made up of independent computers, linked by a network.

At the present time, both concurrent and distributed systems are widespread, due to high popularity of multicore machines and computer networks. However, the design and implementation of such systems and corresponding software remains a challenging task. We have to know how to coordinate independent processes to achieve high performance and avoid common pitfalls.

The goal of this course is to introduce the basics of concurrent and distributed systems design and implementation. We will cover a number of classical and modern approaches to this problem, paying special attention to the practical aspects of implementation using Java language.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
- Understand the key advantages of concurrent and distributed systems and common problems the developers may encounter.
- Know different approaches to concurrent and distributed systems design, their advantages and disadvantages.
- Be able to implement simple concurrent and distributed systems using modern tools.
- Be aware of the historical perspective of the developments in this area, understand modern trends and technologies.
