Participants form teams of 5-8 people. All teams will work collaboratively on the same software, handling all tasks from requirements engineering to design, implementation and organization of their teams. All Scrum roles, including Product Owner (who interacts to the customer) and Scrum Master (responsible for supporting the team) are performed by student team members.
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 in your development teams, guided by student tutors. The theory taught in the lecture can be applied directly in the accompanying project. This course focuses on agile methods and concepts and their application.
The software developed during the course is hosted on Github and is available under an open-source license.
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.
