Participants form teams of 5-8 people. All teams will work collaboratively on the same software, handling all tasks from requirements engineering to design and implementation. Development of a software system is the main focus of the course.
This year, we are happy to again have a HPI student club as a customer for the project. Participants will develop a system to organize sport events and sports leagues for the HPI sports club.
We will teach you how to apply the Scrum methodology in a multi-team setting. Over the course of the semester, you will conduct 4 sprints à 2-3 weeks each. The theory taught in the lecture can be applied directly in the accompanying exercise. This course focuses more on the methods and concepts and their application and less on the actual result. The project is hosted on Github and will be available as an open-source project after the course closes.
If the number of participants is too low (i.e., < 10 people), only a single development team will be formed and focus will shift towards scalability of the developed application.
