In this lab course we systematically address modern software engineering approaches in an application driven context: Tsunami simulations. Starting from implementation of a solver in a one dimensional setting, the complete process over integration in an existing framework to optimization and parallelization is covered. During this process key issues of software engineering are dealt with: versioning, documentation, unit testing, file I/O, ..
During the course, assignments are to be solved by groups of three participants each followed by presentations in regular meetings. A project phase with individual study projects chosen by the groups completes the lab course.
- Knowledge of object oriented programming
- Basic knowledge of C or C++
- Interest in a challenging but exciting topic
The spoken language in the meetings is German, slides and assignments are in English.
