Schedule for the Rest of the Semester

We have seven more lectures (including today's lecture) in the semester. Here is my tentative plan for these lectures. Today and next week, we will be looking at the issue of testing. Please read chapters 8 and 9 in the Pfleeger book for these lectures. I will then spend one or two lectures returning to the topic of concurrency and examine the results of Tim Bray's WideFinder project. I'll then include a lecture on Web 2.0 and its implications on the development of Web applications and finally we'll look at the development philosophy of a successful Web2.0 company known as 37signals. For that lecture, please read their collection of essays called Getting Real. It doesn't take long and its a fun perspective on software development.
