We designed a new and simplified grading scheme for final theses, replacing the old one. A thesis still has to pass some basic [OK|NOK] checks like completeness of declaration of materials built on, relevant topic, no plagiarism, etc. However, this is a binary decision and does not affect the grade directly (except for failing if these criteria are not met).
The grade then is derived using only four main measures. These are:
- Results quality
- Method competence
- Effort expended
- Presentation quality
Each measure is taken on scale of [0..10], where 0 means not present at all and 10 means perfect, with a linear distribution around the mean. The four measures are combined using the geometric mean, from which a grade in the German 1,00 – 5,00 grading system is derived.
This new grading scheme has been put into effect starting the academic year of 2017/18.
Yesterday and today we hosted the 2nd GI AK workshop on microservices and DevOps at SUSE, in Nuremberg. We had 37 registrations, 26 people showed up, and about half of them were from industry. Thank you SUSE, for having us!
We kicked off our teaching of elective courses this week. Winter semester teaching comprises ADAP, NYT, PROD, and AMSE. Below please find a photo impression from PROD, our course on software product management.
Sivantos (former Siemens audiology) is looking for a Werkstudent to continue the AMOS SS17 project, in which it developed software for a Raspberry Pi as a user agent for testing hearing aids. Please see Sivantos career opportunities at Werkstudent (m/w) im Bereich Softwareentwicklung / Single Board Computer / Raspberry Pi (486).
We are organizing a meeting of the GI AK on microservices and devops on October 19-20th in Nuremberg. Suse has generously offered their event space for the workshop. The workshop is free and open to the professional public. The agenda has been finalized. It is still possible to register for the workshop. Despite this English-language announcement, the workshop is likely to be held in German.
We will be talking about open source user consortia at the Tag der Technischen Fakultät of FAU on Nov 17, 2017. Please find our poster depicted below.
