Past Seminars

Thursday, November 7 @ 6:30 pm in Westby 111 – Configuration Management and Technical Debt, by Doug Taggart of Lockheed Martin

This seminar will cover topics ranging from configuration management and continuous integration to static code analysis and technical debt tracking. To many software development ends with the final commit or check-in, usually followed by a brief moment of satisfaction and self-congratulation. But to others this is only a temporary hiatus before the next stage of the software development process begins: configuration management, and software quality assurance. A process normally shunned by most software engineers, CM and SQA play a vital role in the delivery of a polished software product and is a cornerstone for most companies in the aerospace and defense sector. For many customers testing alone is not the only requirement needed to guarantee the quality of a deliverable.


Thursday, October 24 @ 6:30 pm in Westby 111 – Secure Coding, by Joseph Patarcity of LM-RMS

Secure Coding is writing computer software with the perspective of security. Defects, bugs and logic flaws are the traditional source of exploitable vulnerabilities. In an internet-of-things age, it is important now more than ever to consider the security implications of the code we write on a day to day basis. We will review key terms, notable exploits and their consequences, and look at C/C++ examples of commonly exploited defects, bugs and logic flaws, providing the perspective needed for secure coding.


Test Driven Development by Garry Ledford of AFMS

The goal of this presentation is to inform students of the concept of test-driven development (TDD), its benefits, applications, and pertinence to object oriented software development. Concepts to be discussed include the TDD cycle, as well as TDD styles, TDD practices, and tools for implementing TDD concepts. Following the presentation, the floor will be open for a Q&A session where students can raise questions or thoughts for further discussion with the presenters.
