SEI Software Engineering Workshop for Educators

Seventh SEI Architecture-Centric Engineering (ACE) Workshop for Educators

The Seventh SEI Software Architecture Workshop for Educators was held at the Software Engineering Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, on August 16-18, 2010. This workshop offered the Developing Software Product Lines course as its centerpiece.

The format was similar to previous workshops. The workshop began with the two-day course, Developing Software Product Lines. This two-day course provides an in-depth treatment of the concepts and essential ideas covered in the Software Product Lines course. Using a comprehensive software product line example that includes a complete set of assets and artifacts, participants will work together to carry out many of the management and engineering activities necessary for successful product line practice.

The third day was a brainstorming session, led by SEI architecture team members, on the inclusion of SEI software architecture and product line concepts in their courses. There was no charge for the workshop. However, attendees were responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses. 

Collaboration at this workshop resulted in a workshop presented at CSEET on May 22, 2011

  • Marty Barrett, Ayse Bener, Steve Chenowith, Amine Chigani

The group decided to ask for a shared artifact as the "entry fee" for the workshop next year.
