All students registered in TISS until the deadline will have access to the TUWEL course starting Wednesday, 04.03.
To enter the group phase, you have to complete Assignment 0 (A0), which will be available on TUWEL.
You will be able to deregister until 09.03.2020 23:55, which is also the deadline for A0. As soon as you submit A0, you will receive a certificate (Zeugnis).
Formally, participation in this course is regulated by STEOP rules. Please understand that we cannot make any exceptions.
We expect that you have working knowledge with at least one imperative programming language (e.g., Java, Python), as taught in an introductory programming course.
We also require basic knowledge of version control systems, particularly how to use git.
The following timetable lists all important dates for the course (lectures, tests, deadlines, tutor office hours) together with accompanying material (required reading, slide PDFs).
Required reading should be done in preperation before the lecture!
Reading material is not always strictly "reading", but can also involve interactive online exercises.
Note that: The contents of the listed required readings will be part of the tests.
If a deadline is listed on a certain date, assume it due at 23:55 that day unless specified otherwise.

Additional reading and exercises
For those who want to read and practice on their own, we collected a list of additional (optional) resources (interactive tutorials, reading):
- HTML: Practice HTML (FreeCodeCamp)
- REST: Read the REST API Checklist
- Frontend Frameworks:
- As the lecture progresses, we will add more resources here!
Lecture ModeThe lecture will follow a light-weight version of the flipped classroom model:
- In particular, we provide required reading material prior to class.
- In class, we quickly revisit the given material (usually in the form of presenting slides)
- We then demonstrate the material live on the command line, browser, or IDE.
We want each team member to substantially contribute to the project. Thus, we will track the lines of code commited to GitHub for every assignment (after data cleaning, e.g., removing whitespace, comments, and so on) as a measure of relative contribution to the project. Please ensure that you divide work up as evenly as possible within the group, so that every member can contribute. If you do pair programming, please switch up computers (or at least git email in the commits), so that really everyone gets to actively program.
It does not have to be exactly 25% per team member. However, if we see a large gap between relative contributions, we will look into the situation and deduct points accordingly.
GradingYour grade will be a combination of the theoretical part (tests) and practical part (assignments). Material for the theoretical tests will be the contents of the lecture slides and required reading indicated in timetable/lectures.
- Two written tests (50 points each)
- Test 1: L1 – L5
- Test 2: L6 – L10
- The sum of both tests has to be at least 40% (40 points)
- The tests will be held online on TUWEL. You will need a stable internet connection.
- Four assignments (A1-A4) with different total points (35, 25, 20, 20)
- More than 33% of each assignment (except for A1, which was originally 25)
→ More than 8.5 points for A1 and A2, more than 6.5 points for A3/A4
Grading ScaleThe theoretical and practical part affect the grade at a ratio of 1:1. The resulting percentage points map to grades as follows:
- S1: 88-100%
- U2: 75-87.99%
- B3: 63-74.99%
- G4: 50-62.99%
- N5: 0-49.99%
