About the Seminar

With the rising size and complexity of software projects, good engineering practices become more and more important, especially for major tech companies such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and co. In this seminar, we discuss different topics from software engineering, viewed from the perspective of big tech companies, and we relate them to current research topics and open research problems.

We focus on topics like:

  • How to work well in developer teams

  • How manual techniques such as code review shape software development

  • Handling testing and infrastructure at a large scale

  • How tools can help in making software engineering at a large scale better manageable with automation

  • Running continuous integration and delivery with millions of customers
