The group will have to adopt and simulate the practices typical of a SCRUM team. Visual Paradigm has to be used in particular in reference to its support to SCRUM teams and collaborative work (see link).
  • The course also foresees a final written exam in which the student will have to answer questions and solve exercises on the different parts of the course. The exam will last around 2 hours. Students willing to improve their final mark can ask for an additional oral examination.
  • The project has to be delivered before taking part to the written paper
