BSB Navigator is published to Apple's AppStore

We are proud to announce the launch of BSB Navigator to the AppStore. BSB Navigator is an indoor navigation app for the Bavarian State Library, developed in cooperation with Bokowsky + Laymann during iOS Praktikum in summer term 2015 .

Bavarian State Library (BSB) is one of the largest libraries in Germany and offers diverse services and facilities to more than 3000 visitors per day. Finding different facilities in the large historical building with about 30,000 square meter on 5 floors is difficult, specially for new visitors. The BSB Navigator app solves this problem by offering several features such as interactive maps, indoor navigation, and guided tours. A team of 8 students developed the app during the practical course iPraktikum in summer term 2015. The project not only involved the development of the app, but also setting up a beacon-based indoor navigation infrastructure with more than 240 beacons and signal measurements in the whole coverage area. Only hours after the release, the app received a substantial media coverage, among others in Süddeutsche Zeitung and heise.de.

Tutors wanted: EIST and POM (Summer 2016)

We will teach two courses in the summer semester 2016: (1) Introduction to Software Engineering (EIST) has a focus on software development with exercises on analysis, design, modeling, programming and testing. (2) Project Organization and Management (POM) has a focus on software project management with exercises on agile methods, meeting management, retrospectives, release management, continuous integration and continuous delivery

Both courses have special emphasis on blended and experiential learning, mixing theory with exercises. We expect more than 1000 students in EIST and more than 400 students in POM. Therefore, we are looking for motivated tutors who help us in the preparation and conduction of these exercises. If you are interested in EIST, please write an email to Jan Knobloch. If you are interested in POM, please write an email to Stephan Krusche.

iPraktikum and related courses, summer 2016

We will offer the iPraktikum again in the coming summer semester! We are looking for participants in various roles. Would you like to learn about software engineering in an applied setting while developing a mobile application? Apply as a Developer for the practical course iPraktikum.

If you have already participated in a project at our chair, consider applying for the seminar/practical course Advanced Project Management. In this course, you get to take on the role of a Coach and learn about agile project management in a real project.

Are you an experienced iOS developer? Apply to be a Tutor in our introductory courses and teach beginners how to develop in Swift as participant in the (pro)seminar Teaching iOS. You prepare an interactive tutorial and help students during the course.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Dora Dzvonyar or ios (at) in.tum.de


Werner-von-Siemens-Ring foundation awards young scientist

Since 1978, the technical and scientific associations of the Werner-von-Siemens-Ring foundation honor young nature scientists and engineers. The young scientists receive a honor medal and a certificate, and are invited to join events of the foundation. The Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) recommended Stephan Krusche as young scientist for his successful research in the area of agile development and continuous software engineering.

The Werner-von-Siemens-Ring foundation followed the recommendation. Prof. Dr. Joachim Ullrich, the chairmen of the foundation, honored Stephan in addition to four other researchers in natural sciences as young scientist 2015 in a colloquium in Berlin. Stephan had the opportunity to present his research about agile development and continuous software engineering to the members of the foundation.

Stephan is the third researcher of the Chair for Applied Software Engineering who received the award. He follows Timo Wolf and Walid Maalej who received the award in 2007 and 2010. 

CSE Workshop @ SE 2016

CSEThe Chair for Applied Software Engineering is co-hosting the 1st International Workshop on Continuous Software Engineering together with RWTH Aachen and FAU Nürnberg. The workshop will take place on February 23, 2016 in Vienna. A detailed description of the topics covered and the call for papers can be found on the CSE16 website. We are looking forward to your paper submissions and great discussions!

Atlassian Summit

AtlassianTwo members of the Chair presented how we scale our courses with tool support at AtlassianSummit 2015 in San Francisco. Lukas and Dora talked about how the Atlassian stack supports instructors in their daily work and allows them to teach applied software engineering to hundreds of students at the same time. The Summit also gave them numerous opportunities to get in contact with Atlassian's product managers, who were eager to get feedback and hear about how universities use their products. The recording of the presentation is available here.

CPSSC 2016 @ SE 2016

CPSSCThe Chair for Applied Software Engineering is hosting the 1st International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems in the Context of Smart Cities. It will take place on the 23rd of February 2016 in Vienna. This workshop is a forum for authors to present their early research findings in the field of Cyber-Physical Systems in the context of Smart Cities. The workshop aims at overviews, theoretical approaches, tools and frameworks, applications, system infrastructures and test beds for Cyber-Physical Systems. A detailed description and the Call for Papers can be found at CPSSC website. We are looking forward to receive your paper submissions.

ILAS @ Automobilwoche Kongress

AutomobilKongress During the iOS Practical Course SS 2015 the Incident Localization and Assistance System (ILAS) has been implemented at the Chair for Applied Software Engineering. In cooperation with T-Systems International GmbH, ProGlove and the Institute of Automation and Information Systems at TUM, 8 students and Constantin Scheuermann as project leader implemented a system that supports production line experts during their maintenance routines. The core of the framework is the integration of a smart glove (ProGlove) in combination with a smart phone and a web application.
The project was successfully presented at T-Systems Innovation Center Munich and recently at Automobilwoche Kongress 2015 in Berlin. It will also be presented at this years 3rd IEEE ICCC International Workshop on Internet of Things in Shenzhen, China.
Thanks to Alexander Harlass, Galina Volynets, Johannes, Bachhuber, Konstantin Kromer, Leonardo Serra, Maximilian Strobel, Sri Vishnu Totakura and Ulrike Niemann for their great effort during the project.
