Saros @ ICSE

May 14, 2010

ICSE 2010 is over. Those lucky enough to have gone have had their reward of first dibs on the material presented, so now I can present a brief summary of the paper that we in the Software Engineering group at Freie Universität produced for that conference. The paper is both a way of announcing Saros […]

(Not) Going to ICSE

April 9, 2010

My colleagues and I recently had a paper accepted to the CHASE workshop (Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering) at ICSE 2010. The programme details are now available. ICSE 2010 is in Cape Town, South Africa this year, which makes me all the more sad that I can’t go. The presentation of the paper […]

On the Veracity of Sources

April 14, 2009

When I want to learn about something in free/open source software more generally, there are a number of different types of sources to look towards, each one with their own advantages and considerations, and each with an intended audience.

And so CSMR concludes. Still recovering from the conference dinner (surreally hosted in the Hotel Alcatraz, which used to be a prison — and that’s not a joke). Enjoyed it here, conversed with some really interesting chaps, and one or two personal heroes. Let me wrap up with some bite-sized snippets: Acceptance rate of papers: […]

CSMR 2009 soldiers on. Today’s keynote was delivered by Tibor Gyimothy which looked at software metrics from the developer’s point of view. He presented the results of a study where developers were surveyed for their opinions on various metrics. The developers were divided based upon such attributes as experience, platform knowledge (Java, C/C++, C#, SQL), […]

CSMR – Day 1

Guten tag. How embarrassing. The weather in Kaiserslautern is bad, I’m an Englishman…. and I don’t have an umbrella. But at least the Fraunhofer IESE Centre is a wonderful environment. Which leads me to quickly express my admiration of the German approach to technical research and development. Briefly, there are four “actors” in their setup: […]

Going to the CSMR Conference

March 18, 2009

This year’s European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering is in Kaiserslautern, Germany. I’ll be there, but my fellow researchers in the Centre of Research on Open Source Software won’t because we’ve been accepted to so many different conferences we have to divide ourselves up because it’s the only way we can afford to attend […]
