- Some questions were unfair, because it was calculation questions on things that we didn"t practise in class/things that there isn"t any training exercises on.» (To some extent)
- The exam and lab was very good, but I would have liked something like a "dugga" halftime or so.» (To some extent)

- too surprising test» (Yes, definitely)

- The first part was a bit hard when not knowing any C code or how to start. We never got that we should use the application.c file existing.» (Partly)
- Somewhat hard to understand the tasks. A more detailed description on the last part, when communicating with others, would help. A lot of time was spent on just learning how the other guys were thinking to come up with a common interface. A good exercise, but in the end it took too much time» (Partly)
- The last step of part 1 was a bit fussy.» (Partly)
- Especially the exact measurements which needed to be taken for the processor demand analysis and the requirement of changing keys dynamically at run-time were not clear in the beginning.» (Partly)
- Some of the requirement need to be more clear.For example ,in step 3 for part 1, when I change the period of the load, I do not know whether I need to change the deadline of the load respectively.» (Yes)

- Very well organized!» (Excellent)
- I think its a good example for other teachers giving courses!» (Excellent)
- Interesting subject, interesting guest lectures, good lectures» (Excellent)
- I didn"t have any specific idea about real-time systems area before taking the course. This course was so fascinating and revealed the vastness of research as well as industrial applications of real-time applications to me. It gave me the motivation to dive into this field and added a broad research area to my interests. All these are thanks to the skills and abilities of the course examiner in delivering the course in a nice and fun teaching atmosphere. » (Excellent)
- Totally i think this course was excellent.I could improve my skills in programming and concept of real time programming.» (Excellent)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The laboration assignment.»
- Music player in the lab assignment, the guest lectures, TinyTimber»
- Organization»
- The labs and teachers»
- Risat!»
- The lab!»
- 1.Definitely Risat, but unfortunately he won"t be here since he will be done with his PhD by then 2.The lab assignments»
- The course web page»
- Every thing including lecture slides, exercise sessions, guest lectures and lab assignment were highly organized and should be kept for the next year. »
- more time for lab times»
- The labs and exercises worked very well. »
- the lab topic»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Nothing»
- Maybe start labs earlier, make lab hardware accessible outside scheduled hours»
- Lab description»
- formula for sheduling have to be given for exam»
- More info about what the simulator is capable and not capable of doing. We spent too much time on issues that were issues just in the simulator.»
- Take a look at the compiler, we spent a lot of time correcting strange errors. That time could have been spent understanding the course.»
- Boxes should be repaired or even change to more stable ones. and it needs to have more boxes.»
- Maybe the introduction to the first part of the lab. It was quite hard to get going.»
- time schedule: It is really hard to learn from 1:00 pm to 9:00 pm.....»
- Programming skills have to be evaluated through lab sessions not in the written exam even the basic ones.»
- More real-time exercises in the lab.»
- More hardware implementation in the lab. Give information about the hardware instead of handing us the complete code. »
- Regarding programming with TinyTimber, it was very time consuming to develop some functions that are needed to debug our code, like integer to string conversion function. It would be very helpful some widely used methods be added to the library in order to let students save their time and focus on the core assignment. »
- It would have been nice to have more lab sessions, because in the later parts progress without hardware access is difficult (not everything can be simulated). Also the compiler was a bit quirky, and improvements in the IDE would be nice (e.g. keyboard shortcuts would be a start).»
- more time for lab times»
- To clarify the labs.»
- There should be quick C programming language tutorail so that student from different backgroud can follow the lab efficiently»
- Nothing.»
- the lab topic»
- It will be better if the problem description in the lab assignment could be clearer. There are some confusing parts in it. »

19. Additional comments

- A very good course, learned very much without really noticing :)»
- It was frustrating to have access to the hardware in the lab only. You did not dare to change too much of the code at home because you did not know if it would work when you got to the lab. A better simulator that can handle the labs or more access to the hardware would make things more smooth.»
- The exam was kind of hard, I would have liked a example exam for the new version of the course.»
- Unfortunately Risat will be done with his PhD and he won"t be here next year. He is super great!»
- None»
- The exam questions were very relevant to the taught materials. However, one point is the question dealing with calculation of WCET. It is not a big deal to compute WCET for a given piece of code, but the exam problem was rather time-consuming and it was not possible to uniformly allocate time to solve it compared to other problems. I think it is fair a smaller piece of code to be given in the exam concerning calculation of WCET. »
- Rista Pathan is the one of best assistant that i have seen in all of my life.»
- This course was great in general. »
- apart of the lab topic everything was perfect specailly the lecturer and assistant, they were both very helpfull. specailly the assistant»
