Software systems of the future or how to print your own lunch

Wednesday, 20 March, 2013 - 13:00

During the session several cutting edge sample technologies (e.g., use of food printers instead of cooking) will be provided to stimulate the discussion and help everyone discover some truly inspired ideas. The imagined systems will then be put through the Software Engineering process.  You will be provided with requirements, furnished with operational processes (use cases), interfaces, and even designs to help bring their idea to paper. You will also work in groups working on your system visions, present these to their peers, provide mutual feedback, and improve their systems accordingly. A number of helpers will circulate through the groups and support the process. By the end of the workshop each group will have the blueprints for an imagined new system for use in 2113 and good grasp on how to work on system development today.
