CMPS-107 Open Source Programming UC Santa Cruz Winter 2017

Open Source projects produce some of the most utilized and critical software ever deployed, but joining a high profile project can be daunting since its organization can be difficult to navigate, requiring familiarity with its rules and history. In addition, Open Source projects often put developers in close contact with end users, and successful participation typically requires the programmer to take an active role in ongoing maintenance. This course will teach a student how to participate in a demanding and dynamic Open Source project.

CS 490 - Software Engineering Western New England University Fall 2014 Senior status, Data Structures

In this course, we’ll be studying the issues involved in developing large-scale software systems. We will cover the software lifecycle and touch on software management. Since many aspects of software engineering are best aprehended through hands-on experience, we will be using a team project to apply what we’re learning. The team project will involve contributing to a Humantiarian Free and Open Source Software (HFOSS) project. In addition, you will write a paper on your learning which counts for a 400-level Learning Beyond the Classroom Experience.
