CSE 4610 Software Development

Over that last five years or so, the software industry has begun to explore lightweight development methodologies as alternative approaches for building software. These so-called "agile" methodologies emphasize the value of people programmers and clients over rigid processes. In this course, several of these agile methodologies will be studied and evaluated. Real programming projects will be implemented. An important part of trying them out will be to use some of the of the interesting new tools that support agile methods, such as:
unit testing frameworks, such as jUnit
refactoring browsers, such as Eclipse and IntelliJ's IDEA
build management tools such as Ant and make

Recommended Texts:
1. The Pragmatic Programmer Author: Andrew Hunt and David Thomas.
2. Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Changes Author: Kent Beck.
3. Agile Software Development: Principles, Patterns, and Practices Author: Rober
