Tool-driven project management for web-based architectures
level of course unit
2. Master study cycle
Learning outcomes of course unit
Students achieve the following learning objectives:
- Students are familiar with various project management tools.
- Students know the advantages and disadvantages of common tools and can select suitable tools.
- Students know how to link and integrate tools with each other.
prerequisites and co-requisites
The course provides students with options of how the management of software projects can be supported with tools. For this purpose, different parts of the project management are identified (e.g. source code management, bug tracking, testing, deployment). Tools for these parts are then discussed, such as GitLab for source code management or Jenkins for CI/CD. In addition, we will demonstrate how individual tools can be linked together to provide a better overview during the project, such as integrating GitLab with Mattermost. The students put the theoretical contents into practice during exercises.
