Lectures provide broad view into open source software development. More detailed understanding will be built by writing your own article and in the seminars.

Lectures are divided into two modules, which both contain self-study material, such as videos, and two physical lectures. The material must have been studies before the lectures. Each lecture ends with a short exam (about 30 minutes).

Passing

The lecture part is completed by passing the short exams during lectures. All parts must be passed.

If you cannot attend the lectures, or you did not pass some part, you have to take a longer, combined exam that is arranged after the lectures. You must retake at least the parts you did not attend or pass. However, you may also try to increase the points from the small exams you have already passed.

The longer, combined exam is held on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 14.15 - 16.00 (lecture hall TS101).
