Subject fundamentals
Mandatory course for the degree in Cinema And Media Engineering.
Its goal is to complete the skills and knowledge of students about software development and advanced programming techniques based on the object oriented methodology and the Java programming language.
Expected learning outcomes

- fundamental algorithms and data structures
- the object oriented programming methodology in terms of classes, object, attributes, behaviors, messages, inheritance, polymorphism
- the support to these concepts provided by the Java programming language

- ability to understand, analyze and solve programming problems of small/medium size, through the definition of the classes, the design of the algorithms, the implementation in the Java language, and the testing in the Eclipse integrated development environment

Assessment and grading criteria
The exam is made of two parts:
1) Algorithms, data structures and complexity (maximum grade 6/30)
Written questions (free answering)
No material is allowed
2) Programming (maximum grade 27/30)
Development of a Java project on personal computer, by using the Eclipse environment and the Java library documentation
It is possible to consult any kind of paper material
After the test students must produce a complete and running version of their program within the next 3 working days
Grading is based on the project quality, defined by the running functionalities, the project choices, and the programming style
