Hi and welcome to the course 1DV525!

The course site and course material is at CoursPress:

Review the information under “Course information” to get a quick overview of the course setup.

Allow for some late updates, I’m walking through the course material as we go. We are also using GitLab this year (a new setup for the teacher team) instead of GitHub so prepare for some minor bumps early in the course. We’ll solve it as we go along.

Check the schedule, there is a course intro/startup on Tuesday with Mikael. Note that it is doubled and in half class.

  • 13-15 Half the class. Students with surnamne starting with A-L
  • 15-17 Half the class. Students with surnamne starting with M-Ö
I’ll record it so you can safely stay home and view it later, if you so choose (Corona setup).
It will be possible to take the course all through online activitites.
The slack channel is a good place to get answers and get the latest updates (link at coursepress site). Feel free to help your fellow students and answer their questions.

You should have all you need in GitLab, to get going with the first assignment, A00. The other assignments are not yet released.

Thats all for now. See you Tuesday or keep being updated though the Slack channel.

Best regards,

//Mikael && Henrik

PS. I’ll deal with you who have re-registered on a case-by-case basis. Let me know what assignments you have left and I will wrap up an excel sheet to sum it up, before I decide on how to make that happen (grade older assignments or re-do the new ones).


Updating for course round in the Autumn of 2020

This course site is now (during June-Aug 2020) being updated for the upcoming course round scheduled in the early Autumn of 2020. The course round will be held in study period 1, between August 31 and November 1, 2020, with students participating from the following programs.

  • Programvaruteknik (sv) & Software Technology (en), term 5
  • Nätverkssäkerhet (sv) & Network Security (en), term 5
  • Datateknik (sv), term 5 (electable)

The current plan is to have the course mainly through online activities. This might change depending on recommendations to deal with the Corona situation. There is a tentative schedule (see the left menu) for the course.

The course is held in English.

This website will be the main course platform where information and exercises are distributed. Course repos will be on GitLab where you will access exercises to train and tasks to submit. The submission will mainly be to GitLab.

Mikael Roos will be the main responsible teacher for this course round.

Let’s see each other after the summer to do some web programming.
