Prof: Ted Beers / Winter 2022

Comments on the course

Get a good team! It is crucial that you have team members pulling their weight.

Course Content

Team-based class focused on the role of a Business Analyst, lots of talk about project requirements and collected and refining them. Again, using Ted's proprietary EARe Studio. Textbook online for free.

Comments on the professor

Ted Beers is kind and understanding, especially if he sees that you are doing the homework and reading, and really trying. He unfortunately has a tendency to write his assignments and questions using the lifetime of computer knowledge that he has built and expects students to understand what he is asking for or what he means. Clarification is often required.

Advice

Do the work, do the reading, and get a good team! We used Discord for meetings and GDrive to keep the documents all in one shared place.

Comments on the course

It was ok, I didn't really enjoy it, I kinda just endured it.

Course Content

Database design and implementation using Ted's proprietary EARe Studio. It was ok, very in-depth into the requirements of databases and design. I think it will be useful, particularly if one tends to work with databases. Textbook available online for free.

Advice

Do the work, don't fall behind, it is difficult to catch up. You can go back and correct past work to get full credit and will need to do so anyways to properly implement the next week's work.

Comments on the course

It was ok. I had already taken a lower-level Operating Systems class for my Associates degree, but I felt that this class was far more in-depth and involved.

Course Content

Lots of technical knowledge and discussions about it. I didn't retain a lot of the information so I don't know how useful it will be.

Do the homework, do the reading, study if you need to and you will do great.
