Process-driven Software Development: an Approach for the Capstone Sequence
Most computer and information sciences (CIS) programs require a capstone sequence consisting of one or more courses in software development. While the end-product of these project-oriented courses often results in student teams developing and demonstrating some rather impressive applications, it is rare that these products can rival real-world application development that students may encounter in the workplace. This paper thus takes the position it is the process under which an application is developed that is far more valuable to the student than the application itself. Features of several popular heavy weight and light weight methodologies are presented accompanied by methodology recommendations for both one and two course capstone sequences. A decision tree is also included.
