Reading: An introduction to software engineering

This work is due by 9:00pm on Thursday, 25 January 2018.

Read chapter 1 and sections 10.1-10.2 of the SaaSbook.

Watch at least one SaaSbook video for those sections in “full attention” mode. You should only have the video on the screen. You should have no distractors. You should have a notebook and writing utensil in hand. You may watch at whatever speed you consider appropriate. (You’ll watch the videos on the MOOC.)

For the journal send an email message to me titled “CSC 321 2018S, Journal for Day 3 (Your Name)” (without the quotation marks) and with answers to the following questions.

  1. Summarize in a sentence: How is the agile approach different from the plan-and-document approach?

  2. What surprised you the most in the SaaSbook material? Why?

  3. What are you most excited to learn more about later in the semester? Why?

  4. What point confused you the most? Try to explain that point in your own words. For example, if you are confused by Service-Oriented Architecture, try to explain what SOA is.
