Impressions from the 2015 AMOS Demo Day

On July 15th, 2015, the AMOS Demo Day took place, with a total of 50 students and industry partners in attendance.

This year six teams presented the results of their hard work, supported by industry partners and members of the OSR Group, managed by Prof. Dirk Riehle and his team. To the students the AMOS Demo Day was an experience they would not want to have missed, working, discussing and developing in groups with different cultures and backgrounds.

This year AMOS Demo Day was organized as a fair. It was a very good experience!

We would like to say thank you to all participants of this special day.

Below, please find some photo impressions:

Abstract

Scrum is one of the leading agile software development processes. Numerous conference talks, certification offers and specialized consulting companies drive managers and software developers into using this framework in their projects. But with all things that are shiny and new, people tend to overestimate its merits but also to underestimate the changes needed in their organizations, their processes and habits and last but not least their software architectures. The talk gives an insight into practical implementations of Scrum in complex environments and the problems that arise beyond the „Hello World“ of Scrum as well as possible solutions.

With roughly 6 million downloads last year and a place in the top 25 open source projects globally, ownCloud is the most downloaded open source project for file, sync and share. This talk will start with an introduction to ownCloud and the overall market before discussing the role of product management in this software startup. The second part of the talk will provide insight into product roadmap decisions, and in particular the balance between tactical and strategic decisions regarding Universal File Access (UFA) via ownCloud – which enables owncloud to connect to various back-end data sources, such as Microsoft SharePoint, Windows network drive, FTP servers and more.

Upcoming Research Talk on Empirical Findings on Effective Documentation of Object Oriented Frameworks by Ian Chai of MMU

The computer science department by way of our research group is hosting a colloquium talk (free and open to the public):

  • by: Dr. Ian Chai, Principal Lecturer at the Faculty of Computing & Informatics Multimedia University, Malaysia
  • about: Empirical Findings on Effective Documentation of Object Oriented Frameworks
  • on: July 20th, 2015, 4:15 pm
  • at: Cauerstr. 11, 91058 Erlangen, Room 01.150-128

Abstract: Object-Oriented Frameworks provide an excellent way for proven, debugged solutions to be reused for a particular domain. However, programmers new to a framework often face a steep learning curve. Therefore, good documentation is essential for framework reuse. We conducted a series of experiments in which we gave different documentation styles for the same problem to different groups of learners. Documentation styles studied include Step-by-step Documentation, Patterns, Minimalist Documentation, and JDoc. These experiments suggest some guidelines for how to document frameworks for new users.
