CS 5010 is the mandatory introductory course for students in the MS program. The course has two distinct objectives. First, it will ensure that all MS students have the same background in designing programs. This encompasses the entire design cycle, from problem analysis to the development of test suites. Second, the course will also introduce students to programming as a people discipline. Students will work in pairs, present code to panels, and learn to cope with an evolving code base. The course will require a serious commitment to practical hands-on programming from the student. Students report typical time-on-task as upwards of 20 hours per week.
Instructional Format. This class will use a "flipped-classroom" model, in which online exercises replace most lecture material. (Details)
CS 5011. The course comes with a lab course, called CS 5011. Students must register for both courses to receive credit. (Details)
Preparing your laptop. Before classes start, you should prepare your laptop for use in the course. Instructions for doing this are here. Windows, Mac, or Linux laptops are all acceptable. PLEASE HAVE THIS ACCOMPLISHED BEFORE THE FIRST LAB MEETING, AND BRING YOUR LAPTOP TO THE LAB. A laptop is not required for the course, but most students use them.
