- Had to wait 15 minutes over schedule time before I was squeezed in to a seat for the final exam. I was registered but there was a lot that wasn"t, with seat!» (Very badly)

Genomsnitt: 4.08 (bidrar till totalt genomsnitt/jämförelseindex)

- The customer proxy vs. customer concept was a bit hard to grasp. We thought the proxies were meant to be our PO:s (and Robert really too busy to contact) and therefore we did not seek meetings with the real customer.» (Good)
- -Guests could avoid discussing base agile theory. » (Good)
- Best course this semester, only thing lacking was guest lectures. Perhaps some more suggestion for how you could work in the group to mix things up. Our group used the same techniques throughout, might be beneficial to mix things up.» (Excellent)
- Come to teach us the next subjects please!!!» (Excellent)
- i learned on multiple areas: android programming, agile, visualisation (I"m an interaction designer)» (Excellent)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Lectures»
- Everything »
- team project»
- Lectures, video, project»
- The project setup»
- The project cause it introduced us to the Agile way of working.The debate on the last workshop was also very important and I learned a lot from the different approaches on each topic.»
- Teacher»
- mixing the teams»
- keep itup»
- The structure of the project»
- The project, however instead of (or add) the presentations you can every Friday have a workshop were all the groups have to present their results from their retrospective. By having this other groups will come up with new ideas on how to improve their process and you also make sure that the process is actually is followed. »

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Project»
- Everything... The teacher should interact more with the groups. Try to have roles for everyone and changing every week to cause impediments. Less focus on code and more focus on the process.»
- Please book a larger room for workshops, cramming 60 people into J318 (?) is claustrophobic, tiring due to the bad air and against fire regulations.»
- "Software is your primary goal: The primary goal is to produce *high-quality* software that meets stakeholders’, needs." P23 D. COHEN ET AL. To care about quality of code is also part of the Agile"s principles. However, as we were told to *don"t care about the code*, then some team members (most not experienced with programming) took advantage of it to do not care about code quality at all. It was frustrating for me because I would like to do things properly by following the best SE practices, conventions, design patterns and so on... and in the end to improve even more my SE skills. But at some point I had to gave up on that approach in order to avoid further conflicts with other team members. In fact we could provide a better (fully working) software in the end if we were not told that "don"t care about code quality".»
- more/better contact with the product owner instead of proxies»
- nothing, it is good»
- A project that does not require people to learn so many new technologies and can focus more on the agile methods»
- Maybe make to presentation shorter and focused on the product and not the process and have workshops during the course as explained in the question above. »
- Workshops on Android and TDD better and prior to starting the project»
- Discussion and workshop in small groups instead of written final exam.»
- Look into options for more flexible collaboration please.»
- The way the exam was executed! See Additional comments»
- Give some optional agile practices for the project, instead of just allowing tweaking of the ones given.»
- Lectures did kinda drag on.. But the subject is very abstract, hard to escape that.»
- maybe the schedule can be a little flexible»
- The written exam. It didn"t feel useful at all.»
- noting»
- Maybe loosen up on the "no work unless everyone is present!!!!!!".»
- Feedback from PO»
- Course had limited time slots and teachers did not understand that the expected amount of working hours was hard to fulfill for a group with 7 members. Everyone had to work at the same time in order to be able to report the time.»
- To speed up the gathering of requirements, I"d prefer to have the sprint meeting with the Product Owner(assistant) if possible but then again, like Robert said, we never asked :)»
- The group work was definitely good experience, but after team members get to know each other better they start to discuss other things beside project work. It was time consuming and disturbing. I dont know how you can improve this but maybe to avoid that strict rule that all the team should work together in the same place.»
- Question paper.too diffficult»
- Reducing a bit the size of the project teams.»

17. Additional comments

- By far Robert Feldt is the most valuable teacher in this Master programme. In addition to that, the guys (Ali and Emil) were quite well. Thank you Robert and keep up with your good work.»
- Thanks for a nice course :)»
- Please make sure that students that take the course actually knows something about programming, since I guess that it is a prerequisite for taking the course.»
- The exam was NOT executed in an valid manner! Me and some of the other students had to wait 50min (after the exam started) to get the exam, NOT a valid exam in my opinion. The exam guards couldn"t speak English which made the situation more uneven.»
- Enjoyed the group project, enjoyed the course overall. Book was alright.»
- in general the course is good»
- 3/5»
- The course went well and I really enjoyed the autonomy that was given to the students. Keep up!»
- Overall I learned a lot in this paper»
