Special Topics in Software Engineering:
Software Development with C#
C# is a mixture of Java, C++ and Visual Basic. It combines Java's type safety (type checking, garbage collection) with the power and flexibility of C++ (e.g. operator overloading, low-level operations). In addition to that it has some new features for component-based programming (properties and events), a kind of function pointers (delegates), reference parameters, stack objects and many other useful things. It also includes features of functional programming languages (e.g. lambda expressions) as well as SQL-like queries on memory data structures or XML (LINQ).
As a companion to this course we recommend to attend also the course Special Topics: The .NET Technology in which the .NET architecture and the APIs for Windows, Web and Database programming in C# are explained.
Students attending this course can download the handouts as PDF documents from the KUSSS web page of this course.
Exam and Project
There will be a written exam.
In order to pass the course you also have to implement a small C# project. The topic of this project can be freely chosen by you. The only requirement is that the project has at least 250 lines of code.
The project has to be presented at the SSW institute (if possible on your own notebook). Please write an index.html page with a short description of the program's features as well as with download instructions. Put all project files in a directory that has your name. The best projects will be published on dotnet.jku.at.
The project can either be presented to Prof. Mössenböck or to DI Lengauer.
If you do both the C# project and the .NET project you can present both projects on May 20 (see here) to Prof. Mössenböck.
