SWEN 301 (2021) - Structured Methods

This course introduces the processes, practices, and tools required to engineer medium to large software systems. Topics include software craft, architecture, design, implementation, testing, maintenance, quality assurance, configuration management, and open source development. Practical work will use integrated development environments, automation, and domain-specific languages.

Please check https://www.wgtn.ac.nz/student-health/resources/coronavirus for relevant information. Course-specific arrangements for students who cannot be on campus in time:
  • All lectures will be recorded.
  • All lecture notes are available in electronic form, but as they are hosted on Google Docs, there could be problems accessing them in China. If this affects you, please contact the lecturer to provide PDF versions.

On Wednesday 3 March I will trial streaming the lecture using the course zoom room (https://vuw.zoom.us/my/swen301). The lecture will also be streamed via panopto. I hope to get some feedback after the lecture on what the preferred option is.
