Software Process in the Classroom: The Capstone Project Experience
September/October 2002 (vol. 19 no. 5)
pp. 78-85

A process-oriented perspective on large student projects guides students in integrating end-to-end lifecycle skills and provides consistency of experience among projects. After conducting 49 capstone projects, the authors learned that they must cultivate a process culture; that agile processes provide a bridge from ad hoc course programming assignments to organized project work; process requires a suitable infrastructure of tools and process expertise and they should be written to focus learning.
