Students of computer science (Informatik) should note that this is course is less about technology and more about economics and the software industry.
The course combines weekly lectures with homework. Homework typically involves reading materials and summarizing these readings in short one-page documents. Some homework consists of installing a tool (FOSSology) and using it to create a bill-of-material for open source projects, including checking for license compliance. Students should be able to install and use the tool.
