Class Number: 3046

Delivery Method: In Person

Overview

  • Course Times + Location:

    Mo, We, Fr 1:30 PM – 2:20 PM
    REMOTE LEARNING, Burnaby

  • Prerequisites:

    One W course, CMPT 225, (MACM 101 or (ENSC 251 and ENSC 252)) and (MATH 151 or MATH 150), all with a minimum grade of C-. MATH 154 or MATH 157 with at least a B+ may be substituted for MATH 151 or MATH 150.

Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

An overview of various techniques used for software development and software project management. Major tasks and phases in modern software development, including requirements, analysis, documentation, design, implementation, testing,and maintenance. Project management issues are also introduced. Students complete a team project using an iterative development process. Students with credit for CMPT 275 may not take this course for further credit.

COURSE DETAILS:

The theory and practice of software development are introduced. Students will learn the standard methodologies underlying software development, plus gain experience using a number of software development tools and a revision control system. Assignments will cover learning to effectively use development tools and producing small applications using established development techniques. The focus of the course is on preparing students to be effective members of a software development team.

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

Topics

  • Software Process: software life cycle, Agile vs plan-driven development.
  • Requirements: system analysis and modeling, requirements specification
  • High-level Design: UML, architectural, design patterns
  • Implementation: coding style, code review, pair programming
  • Quality assurance: unit & integration testing
  • Development tools such as IDE, debugger, and revision control (Git/GitLab).
  • Ethics of software development

Grading

NOTES:

To be discussed in the first week of class.

Students must attain an overall passing grade on the weighted average of exams in the course in order to obtain a clear pass (C- or better).

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html

TEACHING AT SFU IN SUMMER 2021

Teaching at SFU in summer 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods, but we will continue to have in-person experiential activities for a selection of courses.  Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112).
