This course deals with the design and implementation of software subsystems. The concept of design patterns is introduced and common patterns are applied to the development of software components.

Quizzes will be given nearly every week at the beginning of lab. The lowest quiz score will be dropped. No make-up quizzes (even with a valid excuse) will be given.
Unless stated otherwise, all laboratory assignments will be completed individually. All Lab assignments are worth 100 points per week (i.e., a two week lab assignment is worth 200 points). Each student must create an account using your MSOE login name as your login at XP-Dev.com. It will be used to store your SVN repositories for the laboratory submissions.
The class will be split into three teams. Each team will be assigned a pattern. The team is responsible for researching the pattern, writing a two - four page report describing the pattern and presenting a 50 minute lecture teaching the pattern to the rest of the class.
