Details on selected projects:
Project management in Open Source projects faces a number of challenges and differences from project management within companies that produce commercial software.
Software engineering projects aim to provide an understanding of requirements and design for concepts to meet them. The provide the ground on which programming projects build up on.
Game Design is closely related to Software engineering. It, however, focuses on the concepts behind games instead of software in general.
The programming projects are about implementing concepts developed in the software engineering or game design modules. Programming projects should produce documentation and how-to articles in addition to the writen computer code.
If operating a software system 24 hours a day and 7 days a week is required, know how in system-maintanence and organizing support will be required. For obvious reasons this is not a realistic goal for a small association. But we are trying to get close to this objective.
