Quality & Software Engineering (2017 - 2018)

The objective of this course is to discover what made software engineering tools, under the hood. It is an advanced and optional course that complement the “basic” package delivered during the first semester in the Project course.

The lectures will present a tool portfolio used to improve software quality (how to use it, and also how it works internally), as well as code kata to show elegant solutions to non-trivial problems. The labs relies on a programming game, where students must develop in teams (4 people each) a robot able to explore unknown islands.

Level 4 of the “Templiers Ouest” building implements a restrictive access control policy, with respect to CNRS regulations. Thus, if you want to visit your teacher, you must contact him by phone to unlock the entry door. Use your cellphone or the public intercom available at the door (replacing +33 4 92 96 by 2).

Lab tooling is powered by a free Atlassian Academic license for Polytech Nice-Sophia Antipolis School of Engineering.

Open source and/or free alternatives are available if you want to host side projects by yourself (but don't forget that your evaluation for this course is based on the Jira/Stash content):

  • GitHub: free Git repository and issue tracker for open source and public projects (premium account can have private repositories)
  • BitBucket: free Git repository powered by Atlassian (free for repository up to 5 users)
  • Gitolite: lightweight Git repository server
  • Redmine: An open-source project management toolsuite
    • Chili Project: sub-part of Redmine dedicated to project management
  • to be continued …
