Advanced Programming (DAT240)
The students will learn to apply software development methodologies such as agile and project management tools in developing a large group software project. Learn about various programming paradigms such as objected oriented programming, functional, etc. Learn to identify the difference between these paradigms and their limitations.

DAT110 Introduction to Programming
DAT120 Introduction to Programming, DAT320 Operating Systems and Systems Programming
|Form of assessment||Weight||Duration||Marks||Aid|
|Programming project and oral test||1/1||Letter grades|
Final grade is based on the group project, consisting of one large assignment demonstrating the application of concepts and techniques learned in the course. The project is to be performed in a group. The grade for the project will be based on the submitted program code, project report and an oral presentation, followed by an oral examination related to the project and the concepts learned in the course. If a student fails the project, she/he has to take the project next time the course is lectured.
Three mandatory individual lab exercises (programming and written exercises). Pass/Fail. All obligatory exercises must be passed to attend for the written exam. Approval may take place through the Autograder system for automated evaluation, followed by in-lab approval.
Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made within the allotted time period. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times are made unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed upon.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the exam of the course.
