CSE 503: Software Engineering Spring 2011 David Notkin Basics Assigned Work Syllabus Basics : CSE 503 generally focuses on research issues in software engineering, and it will do so this quarter. At the same time, based on the initial questionnaires, there seems to be a mix of those interested primarily in the research side and those interested primarily in the development side. Therefore we will focus on a mixture of the two -- which are not always so distant from one another -- in lectures. Some readings and assignments may have separate choices for those more interested in research vs. development. Lectures : Tuesday and Friday, 10:30-11:50AM (in CSE 403) Notkin's coordinates : CSE 542, 206-685-3798, [email protected] Office hours : Friday 1-2PM or by appointment. Also, whenever my door is open, feel free to see if I can meet then; if not, we can find a time we can meet. (I anticipate being on campus only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays this quarter, but I will be checking email frequently on the other days.) Syllabus : Calendar, readings, assignments (below) Readings : Free access to papers (unless marked) through UW Libraries from any UW IP address or by clicking the off-campus access link at the top-right of lib.washington.edu) Course mailing list : [email protected] Course discussion board https://catalyst.uw.edu/gopost /board/notkin/21623/ TA : none Academic misconduct : This is a very serious offense and will be dealt with through the departmental, college and university processes. Copying others' work, including from this or previous quarters or from publicly available sources without attribution, is considered cheating. If in doubt about what might constitute cheating, send the instructor email describing the situation. For more details see the CSE Academic Misconduct web page. Do not read this in a way that discourages genuine collaboration and discussion.

5% of your grade will be for class participation, broadly construed including lecture, the course mailing list, etc. 7.5% of the grade is not yet defined, but will likely require a mixture of a small assignment or two and some summaries of selected research papers. There are no examinations. Assignment #1 "Looking backwards" (5% of course grade): Due on Monday April 4 @ 10PM 1. Write a 2-3 page scholarly assessment of what people "got right" and "got wrong" about software engineering through around 1980. That is, based on literature (likely starting with the above, but with more through following citations, searches, asking Notkin, etc.) (a) identify some assumptions or conclusions upon which people based their perceptions of software engineering, and (b) document why in 2011 there is evidence that they were correct or incorrect.
