There is no lecture taking place in the first week of the semester (Oct 12-18) due to introductory weeks of master programmes.


The weekly lecture discusses selected programming topics, C++ concepts, and programming language techniques. Although we will have a short start-up phase on C/C++ prgoramming, this course relies on many fundamental C++ aspects and programming skills. If the participants are not familiar with those concepts, they have to aquire them themselves prior to the lecture (self-study).

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. There is no mandatory homework however.

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