Software Development in an Academic Environment

Researchers: Christopher Hylands Brooks
Advisor:Edward A. Lee

The goal is to train electrical engineers in the art of software development through hands on activities such as design and code reviews, Extreme Programming, test suites and nightly builds[1][2].

Recent results include the release of Ptolemy II and set up of nightly build environments for Mescal and Metropolis.
