Altogether, we got 32 survey form filled during the first lecture.
Here are the feedbacks.

Q1. Most of you have gained experience in developing software.
Some of you even got money :) That's a good sign, meaning it is
probably not necessary to emphasize how important it is to develop
useful software.

Q2. Most of you have experienced developing small to medium 
size software (29/32), yet 3 projects involving large-scale software 

Q3. Most of you have experienced working in teams (23/32), some
of you develop individually (8/32). I guess SE I course was mentioned
by many of the team projects. I believe it is still useful
to experience the team work in SE II. 

Q4. Most projects finish in one year, still some projects 
span longer than that for maintenance (6/32).

Q5. All of you recognize the existence of bugs and the importance of
fixing them. That's a common sense in our class already :)

Q6. Java is the primary programming language for half of you (17/32), 
C/C++ got 9/32, C# got 4/32, VB got 2/32 and others 2/32. It is not
that much different in the course for choosing a certain programming 
language. This course in particular does not force you to use any
particular PL, but the chosen legacy systems were developed in Java. 
Thus it's probably easier for you to learn Java/Eclipse.

Q7. We don't get concensus for the question. It is very useful to
knowing which software is the No. 1 (killer application) and 
No. 2 (competing alternative) for each application domain.

Q8. Many of you want to learn software reengineering, reverse 
engineering and design. I will accomodate to it, see lecture 2.  
One of you suggests to keep the course easier, I can promise you 
it won't be too easy, but it will be easy enough to convey the 
concepts and to transfer some experience ...  We sure will get more 
fun in the study!
