PVL (e.g. Practical):not graded
Precondition for completion of the PVL is the successful participation in the lab project. Further, it is required that each student gives a presentation on a specific aspect of the lab project. The presentation can be held individually or as a group. The topic for the presentation is picked by the students themselves. Possible topics may be, but are not limited to the following examples:
  • Design/Technology decisions taken during the development
  • Conceptual challenges encountered
  • Project fails discovered
Frequency of offering:each summer semester (lastly in WS 2019/2020)
Required knowledge:Prior knowledge in the areas of programming, software engineering, cloud computing, database systems, and distributed systems. The cloud computing related knowledge can be acquired by taking the "Cloud Computing Technology"-course offered by the department.
Learning objectives:The students are able to build modern applications based on cloud infrastructure in real-world set ups. In order to do that students need to be taught how to architecture, design, and implement applications specifically for cloud deployment - cloud-native applications. To be more specific, students will be introduced to modern architectural styles that are well suited for the specific requirements of a cloud environment - these are foremost the microservices' and the serverless architectural styles.

For students, to fully appreciate the unique challenges application engineering in the cloud bears, students need to understand the theoretical background and implications of cloud computing, horizontally scalable applications, statelessness, and their impact on the entire application life-cycle. Further, they need to understand the role of agile software engineering and DevOps for Cloud-native Application Engineering.
  • Cloud Computing / Cloud-native Application Engineering introduction
  • Architecture basics and what is different in the cloud
    • e.g. availability, resilience, scalability, statelessness
  • Application Architectures for the Cloud
    • e.g. 12-factor apps, Service definition, service design, cloud architecture pattern, transaction management
    • e.g. microservices, serverless
  • Deployment Infrastructure and Application Life-cycle Management
    • e.g. agile software engineering, DevOps, quality management, release management
  • Data Architectures for the Cloud
    • e.g. Data persistence, Caching
  • Operational Architecture
    • e.g. Infrastructure-as-code
    • e.g. monitoring, logging, and alerting
