- 8 August 2013: Some notes on lecture concept online.



The weekly lecture discusses selected programming topics, C++ concepts, and programming language techniques. As this is not a preparatory course and as programming skills are among the prerequesites, we rely on many fundamental C++ aspects. If the participants are not familiar with those concepts, they have to aquire them themselves prior to the lecture (self-study). The lecturers publish checklists/slides prior to the session on knowledge required for the lecturers.

In the weekly tutorials, tutors participating in the Supervised Teaching programme first give a brief presentation on selected topics. These talks comprise outlooks and studies on topics not covered by the lecture and the exam that are however mandatory to program successfully today. Examples for topics are systematic testing and debugging, runtime measurements, build environments and so forth. Afterwards, the tutors present and discuss solutions on selected worksheet problems. The worksheets are published online roughly a week before the corresponding tutorials. This way, all participants have the opportunity to study the problems at home before they are presented solutions and additional information on the challenges.

Our tutors are mentored by two senior Ph.D. students due to the Supervised Teaching programme and get didactic feedback and evaluation permanently.

Lecture Slides & Tutorial

The tutorial offers weekly programming exercises in C++. They are inspired by common problems from scientific computing. Besides the tutorials, programming consulting is offered.
