Teaching Time Slots for Summer 2016

For clarification purposes, here are the precise teaching time slots for the upcoming summer semester 2016:

  • AMOS—Wednesdays: Lecture at 10:15-11:45 Uhr, exercises at 12:30-14:00 Uhr or 14:15-15:45 Uhr
  • ARCH—Thursdays: Lecture + exercises at 14:00-17:00 Uhr, coaching at 12:30-13:55 Uhr
  • KOLL—Tuesdays: Seminar at 12:15-13:45 Uhr

There is still inconsistent information flying around; we hope the systems will have sorted out themselves soon.

Full House for Manuel Klimek of Google

Today, Manuel Klimek of Google’s Munich office held a live coding session in ADAP, our course on advanced programming and design. Manuel demonstrated how to write functional (integration) tests for clang while developing a new feature. Thank you, Manuel, for teaching us! Below, please find some photo impressions.

Startupinformatik Testimonial by Stealth Startup

We just received another Startupinformatik testimonial, this time by a stealth startup working on intelligent email solutions.

With our email client we want to rethink the way we experience email communication. Through the design of a fundamentally new user interface combined with a smart handling of emails based on artificial intelligence we provide a solution that enhances user experience and efficiency. Since artificial intelligence forms an advanced area of computer science, Prof. Riehle’s feedback about the feasibility of our business plan was very important to us. Therefore we were very happy about his offer to pitch our startup during his colloquium. Through the valuable feedback of Prof. Riehle himself as well as from his colleagues and students we gained comprehensive advice both from business and technical perspective. We highly recommend start-ups in technology to follow the offer of Prof. Riehle and to consider an early stage presentation within his colloquium.

Michael, Anton and Pranav

Good luck, guys!

Today another package from Ireland reached our office—it contained Google swag courtesy of Manuel Klimek of Google who will give a talk next week on test-driven development in ADAP. The talk is public so FAU students and staff are invited.
