    This course studies methods, tools and techniques for planning and re-planning of software releases. All modern software development approaches are iterative and incremental. Release planning is the process of defining the functionality of the related sequence of product releases or iterations.

    11.12.–12.12.2014
    In Tampere. Register by December 1st.

    There is increased use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for development purposes. This is a significant investment which needs empirical demonstration of the value ICTs are bringing to the development efforts. This seminar aims to do that, that is, highlight the differing roles ICTs are being applied to enhance development. To do that, a theoretical basis which includes development measures and UN Millennium Development goals is included.

  • INFORTE: Digital Activism
