A Mock Software Company: For Teaching Software Engineering (Cse 455) Course, Arturo Concepcion

Q2S Enhancing Pedagogy

This is a novel way of teaching software engineering as an upper-division course for senior computer science students. Teach the class as a mock software company where students play a role in the “software company” such as project managers, assistant project managers, team leads, software engineers, software designers, UI designers, QA engineers, etc. Then to make a realistic work environment, solicit software projects from real clients, not toy software projects that the instructors think of. It has been proven, pedagogically, that project-based learning is one of the most effective way of teaching. There are no quizzes, no mid-terms, and no ...

Determinants Of Startup Funding: The Interaction Between Web Attention And Culture, Jie Ren, Viju Raghupathi, Wullianallur Raghupathi

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

Technology empowers entrepreneurs to pursue alternative funding through platforms like crowdfunding. This research explores significant startup funding factors using Crunchbase. Controlling for common factors (acquisition/funding-rounds/IPO), the research uniquely focuses on web attention - the visibility on social media - and its impact on funding. It also examines the moderating influence of startup’s home country culture (individualism/collectivism). Findings show stronger positive impact of web attention on startup funding for collectivist countries. While individualistic investors value personal goals, collectivists value collaborative goals - inclinations that align with crowdfunding behavior. Therefore while increasing web attention, crowdfunding efforts can be targeted towards collectivist ...

Multi-Level Secure Data Dissemination, Garo Panossian Jun 2019

Multi-Level Secure Data Dissemination, Garo Panossian

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Multi-level security is prevalent within the military; however, the private sector has not yet invested in the approach. As big data, Internet of things, and artificial intelligence drive businesses to collaborate (share data, algorithms, and tools) the need to secure such resources while simultaneously sharing them will push towards an alternative approach-–namely Multi-level security. The military labels data according to the sensitivity it carries as related to national security. Furthermore, the military restricts access by both the overall trust in the individual and by their need-to-know. To put it another way, data has a certain level of sensitivity and ...

Ipv6 Diffusion Milestones: Assessing The Quantity And Quality Of Adoption, John Pickard, Mark Angolia, Dale Drummond May 2019

Ipv6 Diffusion Milestones: Assessing The Quantity And Quality Of Adoption, John Pickard, Mark Angolia, Dale Drummond

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

There are currently two versions of Internet Protocol (IP) in use today, IP version 4 (IPv4) and IP version 6 (IPv6). The original version, IPv4, was standardized in the early 1980s as part of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency Internet program and became the official Internet protocol in 1983 (Kleinrock, 2010). IPv6 was standardized in 1995 as its successor to provide enhanced capabilities and address IPv4 technological limitations, most notable of which was the anticipated exhaustion of address space (Deering & Hinden, 1995). While the two protocols have some functional similarities, they are distinct and not backward compatible; IPv4-only devices cannot communicate directly with IPv6-only devices and vice-versa. Consequently, organizations wishing to take full advantage of the ...

Towards A Fault-Tolerant, Scheduling Methodology For Safety-Critical Certified Information Systems, Jian Lin Jan 2019

Towards A Fault-Tolerant, Scheduling Methodology For Safety-Critical Certified Information Systems, Jian Lin

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

Today, many critical information systems have safety-critical and non-safety-critical functions executed on the same platform in order to reduce design and implementation costs. The set of safety-critical functionality is subject to certification requirements and the rest of the functionality does not need to be certified, or is certified to a lower level. The resulting mixed-criticality systems bring challenges in designing such systems, especially when the critical tasks are required to complete with a timing constraint. This paper studies a problem of scheduling a mixed-criticality system with fault tolerance. A fault-recovery technique called checkpointing is used where a program can go ...
