To ease the communication with us or your fellow students, please join the lecture’s mailing list. There you can ask questions concerning the assignments or the lecture. They should be answered as fast as possible by us or other students. To join the mailing list, visit
Please, use your university email address We are happy to answer your questions. Do not count on us answering emails on the weekend.
To participate in the course you need to do three things:
When you get an e-mail that requires you to activate your SVN account, do so within two days! If you fail to meet the deadline, your SVN account will be invalidated and you will not be able to participate in the exercises (which depend on SVN)!
Copy the following text into an email, add your information and send it to email@example.com:
Please use the subject “[ATSC2013] Hello ATSC”
== Please let us know a bit about your knowledge == What is your bachelor degree major? Describe with a few words, what you know about: UML Java + Other programming languages Software Process Models
This semester we plan to do a student competition. The competition provides you the possibility to compete with your fellow students. Every assignment solution you do gives you a score value. The accumulated score is presented in a leaderboard available on the wiki and updated weekly. Below, you’ll find an example scoreboard with fictional names and scores. The scoreboard will be available on the website of the lecture.
The participation of this competition is optional. To participate, send us your name + a chosen handle by email to firstname.lastname@example.org until the deadline for Assignment Sheet 1 (the next one).
Your handle will be used on the board to identify you on the board. Therefore, feel free to keep it secret for yourself or, if you wish, share it with others. You handle must not be part of your real name to preserve anonymity.
At any time during the semester you can quit the competition by sending us an email. It may be that we add more rewards during the course and there may be a reward in the end for the top ranks.
