Shortly before the 2017 AMOS projects start, we will hold the TEAM workshop on April 20th. TEAM prepares students for high-performance teamwork; it is open for AMOS students only. We will start at 9am, please make sure to reserve the day. (TEAM is optional, but strongly recommended.) Below please catch a glimpse at some of the preparation work.
We proudly present the initial set of confirmed AMOS projects for the upcoming summer semester. All projects will be developed as open source software on Github. Please register on StudOn, if you haven’t done so already, to learn more about the projects and make sure get you a seat in the class.

We posted the course evaluations on our course evaluations page.
Thank you to every student who provided us with feedback. Positive feedback is welcome and makes our day. Critical feedback that helps us improve our courses is equally welcome and appreciated. We will discuss this feedback in class.
At this moment, I can’t help to add a personal note. We made major changes this semester and naturally, not everything worked out perfectly. We see this in the constructive criticism that we will use to improve our courses. Still, one (anonymous) NYT student cared to write: “Prof. Riehle is the nerdiest, geekiest, coolest professor I’ve had at this university. Kudos for using xkcd and phdcomis to illustrate topics.” I don’t know about cool, but I’ll take nerdy and geeky in a heartbeat. Thank you to whoever wrote this!
Today, Nikolay Harutyunyan taught his first teaching case in PROD, our software product management course. The case was on pricing enterprise software products. Also present was Ernst Haagsman of Jetbrains, the original case author. Both Nick and Ernst are graduates of FAU’s International Information Systems program. Congratulations, Nick, for a job well done!
Below, please get a first glimpse of some of the tech we will be using in the upcoming summer 2017 AMOS projects.
Alexa, beam me up!
As a human being, as a professional, and more recently as a professor, I’m happy to help people find jobs (time permitting). In fact, as a professor we have tagged HR professionals in our CRM database so that we can reach out easily to them. Still, introductions for job interviews require preparation on the side of the job seeker. There are a couple of things to consider.
The most common mistake that job seekers make is to ask me: Help me find a job in software engineering or product management or something else. Even if accompanied by a resume, what am I supposed to make of this? Pass on the resume to every company in the world?
The job of job seeking starts with the job seeker. They must find out where they want to go.
If they can’t, they should at least determine some companies of interest to them and provide them to me so that I can decide whether I can actually be of help.
