Course overview

JavaScript Technology - participating students get hands-on experience with designing and building modern JavaScript applications. The students will research the literature for design concepts and available technologies including the use of common JavaScript libraries. The students will prepare presentations and introduce the concepts they chose to use. Each talk is summarized by the students in a seminar report.

This is a completely hands-on seminar which means that you should be building your own app, prepare a presentation that explains what you did and describes the JavaScript concepts you were using. Finally, the entire work will be summarized in a seminar report at the end of the term.

The students will be working in a highly agile environment, meaning that a collaborative work (communication!!) among all students will be essential for the successful completion of the project. Any results thus provided during the coding period of the seminar will need to be communicated and made available to peer coders asap!

Registration: Prior to registration on the TUM Matching System, we would like to get to know you! Please send us an email to jstech@rostlab.org and tell us about yourself a bit: your current current degree, program (e.g. informatics) and explain why you want to join the seminar, what prior course work you have. OPTIONAL: you may add a name of a TUM faculty member as a reference (no need for a reference letter) if you think it will help us know you and your work better.

Tutors: Dr. Guy Yachdav
