Learning Outcomes

Students have advanced hands-on experience with all aspects of software project work (including team-based software development, project management, collaborative decision making, documenting and communicating project results) in the area of distributed systems. They are able to solve real-world problems in the context of advanced design, implementation, and evaluation of cloud-, fog-, blockchain-, and/or web-based application systems in, e.g., enterprise, start-up, and IoT contexts. They are able to identify and articulate open research questions and theses for further work.

Content

Small groups of students analyze and solve challenging software and prototyping problems. They explore and use public cloud services, e.g., Amazon Web Services, and modern software (Web, blockchain, mobile, and other) technology stacks as applicable to the specific project focus defined each term. The student teams work independently and are supervised by participating research groups. Hands-on experimentation with cloud services and open source systems is expected. Concrete tasks and project objectives as regards themes and technology stacks will be communicated at the beginning of the term. Some projects may be in cooperation with external partners.

Description of Teaching and Learning Methods

Small teams of students will develop software prototypes. Projects will be supervised by participating research groups. The number of student participants is limited per project. Students need to submit an application and will be assigned to projects based on capacity and individual preferences. Details will be announced in the ISIS course for this module about two weeks before semester start.

Requirements for participation and examination

Desirable prerequisites for participation in the courses:

Very good programming skills in at least one programming language. Knowledge from at least one lecture in the area of Distributed Systems. Prior experience with LaTeX and collaborative scientific writing. Willingness to work with new technologies, architectural paradigms, and programming models. English skills as necessary to understand technical documentations or to work in international teams. Passion for delivering results, reliability. Topics of the courses include: - Blockchain Prototyping - Specialisation - Fog Prototyping - Specialisation - Information Systems Prototyping - Specialisation - SBE Prototyping - Specialisation

Test description (Module completion)

A running and functional system is expected: Given a clean machine/environment, it must be possible for the supervisors to deploy the developed software artefacts without major disruptions or interactions with the student team towards a running system.

Duration of the Module

The following number of semesters is estimated for taking and completing the module:
1 Semester.

This module may be commenced in the following semesters:
Winter- und Sommersemester.

Maximum Number of Participants

The maximum capacity of students is 21.

Registration Procedures

Will be announced during the kick-off session and in the ISIS course about two weeks before semester start. The number of participating research groups and thus offered projects may vary across semesters. Contrary to the limitation of “21” participants announced above, up to 7 participants will be selected per project offered.
