Software Build and Release - SBR600
This is a professional option in the CTY program. It will be offered for the first time in January, 2009. Watch for updates on this page as the course outline and other details are finalized.
Software Build and Release creates reliable, replicable processes to turn source code and related inputs into ready-to-run software. These critical systems are used in software development companies, IT departments, and Open Source projects, and are highly automated through the use of scripting languages such as Bash, Perl, and Python. Students will learn to manage the Build and Release process by selecting, installing, configuring, customizing, and maintaining a variety of build tools. This is a project-based course, and students will work within an established Open Source community. The particular open source community or communities to be studied will vary with each offering and be announced at the beginning of the semester.
Prerequisites: OPS335 (Servers) and OPS435 (Scripting)
