MET CS 893 Agile and Advanced Software Engineering Methods

Builds on previous design and programming courses and introduces students to the technological, social, and pragmatic aspects of developing open source software through direct involvement in an open source project. Students learn to use the tools, techniques, and strategies of open source developers. They become familiar with the open source movement, its philosophy, history and licensing issues. This is a project-based laboratory course. Students are directly involved with and integrated into an open source project. They are expected to be active participants in the project and contribute to the project in various ways.  [ 4 cr. ]
