In the last lectures and workshops it was discussed that the exam was written as an open 
book exam but that it’s trying to assess more of your understanding more than anything 
else. Does this mean that the question split of theory to coding will be different from 
last year’s exam and also should I stop committing to memory the properties of REST 
architecture and the 12 agile software development principles etc?

No. This doesn't reflect anything on the split of theory to coding. I also wouldn't 
recommend you disregard committing to memory parts of the course. All you should infer from 
this is that it is not enough to *only* commit these things to memory. The exam will also 
interrogate your understanding of these principles.

And to clarify, the exam is *not* open book. I just attempted to write it in such a way that 
having an open book wouldn't be a significant advantage.
