Welcome to the Wiki of the course '''Efficient Route Planning''' in the summer term 2012
The course was given by Prof. Dr. Hannah Bast and took place every Wednesday from 4:15pm until 5:45pm, in seminar room 01-009/13 in building 101. The first lecture was on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 and the last lecture was on Wednesday, July 25, 2012. There was be no lecture on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 (pentecost holidays). That was 13 lectures altogether.
The tutors for this course were Mirko Brodesser (email@example.com) and Eugen Sawin (firstname.lastname@example.org). The responsibles for the supporting systems (Daphne, SVN, Forum, Jenkins) were Jens Hoffmann (email@example.com) and Axel Lehmann (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Here is the link to the Forum (for annoucements and questions).
Here is the link to our CodingStandards.
Here is the link to the slides, video recordings, etc. from last year. Note that the overall contents of this year's lecture will be similar, but that there will be quite a bit of variation / improvement, based on my experiences and the student feedback from last year.
Here is the link to the SVN snapshot of the code files just after the last exercise sheet deadline (June 27, 2012 @ 16:00).
Here is the summary of the official evaluation of the course.

Lecture Slides, Video Recordings, Exercise Sheets, and Code
Remark about the video recordings: we have prepared videos in different formats, in particular: .m4v, .mp4, and .wmv. If you click on one of the links "Video recording" you get that format of which our script thinks that it best fits your device / operating system / browser. If you explicitly want a particular format, simply copy the link address and add the desired extension by hand.

Instructions for filling our the Evaluation Form
1. The evaluation form is a PDF form, please fill it out *electronically*. If possible use the full version of Adobe Acrobat for this (not just the reader). Then you can store the filled out form as a PDF again. With only the reader, saving might not possible. Then you have to print the form as PDF. Note that in that case, any text beyond the 600 letters that fit in one of the free-text boxes is lost. So please stick to that limit in that case.
2. Explicitly *logout* from Daphne, for example via this link (link will be opened in a new tab, afterward go back to this page, so that you can continue to read.) Like this your submission will be anonymous. Without logging out from Daphne, the following steps will not work.
3. Go the forum for the course, for example via this link (also opens in a new tab). The login again as user evaluation with password SS2012.
4. Go to the subforum Efficient Route Planning, SS 2012 -> Official -> Evaluation. Upload your filled out evaluation form there, as an attachment to a random post (which must have a minimal amount of text, consider using your credit card number for that). After the upload, neither you nor any other participant can view the uploaded evaluation form.
