Commercial programming environments (6 points)


Leader: Lindsay Smith

Berwick First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: This unit will examine a range of contemporary programming environments and languages used in commercial application development. Comparative strengths and weaknesses will be examined with a view to selection of the most efficient tool for a given task. The syntax of C++ will be introduced and the language then used to examine several environments across a range of operating systems. UML as a source for base code generation and CVS for code project management will also be investigated.

Assessment: Assignments: Three assignments (60%):a C++ programming task (20%)a written report comparing programming environments or contemporary languages (20%)a group project involving an application development task using CVS (20%)Examination: A two-hour final examination (40%)The final mark will be calculated using a weighting formula:final grade = (R*A* E)/((R-1)*A+E)where A = overall assignment percentage E = examination percentage R = 100/assignment weight

Contact Hours: The student workload requirement is 12 hours per week for 13 weeks. Students will attend 2 hours of lectures and one 2 hour tutorial/laboratory session per week.Students are expected to spend 8 hours per week on individual study and assignment work, including library and computing laboratory work beyond these normal class hours.
