Secure Programming (SP)

Response to 2013/14 survey feedback.

The SP course is not running in 2014/15. We expect it will be resumed in 2015/16.

I'm grateful to the students who provided feedback through BOS (Bristol Online Survey). The was the first year of running the course and I'm pleased that there were so many positive comments (e.g., "Most interesting course I took by far..." and "I even enjoyed the exam").

Suggested improvements which we will try to make for next time include:

  • Issue the coursework a bit sooner.
  • Some labs were challenging; give more guidance for preparation/revision.
  • A revision session nearer exam time by the lecturer, if possible.
