AbstractThis course is an opportunity to take part in leading-edge software construction and gain academic credit for it. The EiffelStudio environment provides a rich basis of extensions and new developments.
The course will be held in laboratory-style: students choose a project and meet regularly with assistants. The best developments are candidate for inclusion in actual software releases.

ContentThe growing popularity of open-source projects provides a fertile ground for creative software developers to demonstrate and hone their design and implementation skills. This course is an opportunity to take part in leading-edge software construction and gain academic credit for it. The EiffelStudio environment (in 2006, 2 million lines of open-source code) provides a rich basis of potential extensions and new developments. The course is not structured as a traditional set of lectures but is laboratory-style: students choose a project and meet regularly with assistants to report progress and obtain guidance. The results produced should meet standards of quality software engineering; the best developments are candidate for inclusion in actual software releases. This is an opportunity to learn by doing and to encounter the challenges of large, production-grade software development.
