    Service coproductions are reciprocal activities with no sharp boundary between providers and recipients; instead, all participants collaborate to enact the service. User participation is validated by recognition instead of extrinsic economic exchange. Mobility and context awareness can be crucial for successful coproductions. View full abstract»

    The programming-with-examples workflow lets developers create interactive applications with the help of example data. It takes a general programming environment and adds dedicated user interfaces for visualizing and managing the data. This lets both programmers and users understand applications and configure them to meet their needs. View full abstract»

    Human-centered methods can help researchers better understand and meet programmers' needs. Because programming is a human activity, many of these methods can be used without change. However, some programmer needs require new methods, which can also be applied to domains other than software engineering. This article features five Web extras.

    Results of a five-year research project and several industrial collaborations have produced tools that model the individual effects and complex dynamic interactions between an IT system's application workload and resource contention at multiple levels in the execution environment. An evaluation shows significant resource efficiency gains without sacrificing the performance specified in service-lev... View full abstract»

    Increasingly complex Android OS applications demand additional software initialization and configuration during startup, which slows system boot time and inconveniences users. The authors propose an approach based on existing snapshot-imaging techniques that can reduce startup time by 80.5 percent and shutdown time by half while avoiding the system-synchronization problem that plagues suspend-resu...

    Microscopes can now cover large spatial areas and capture stem cell behavior over time. However, without discovering statistically reliable quantitative stem cell quality measures, products cannot be released to market. A Web-based measurement system overcomes desktop limitations by leveraging cloud and cluster computing for offline computations and by using Deep Zoom extensions for interactive vi...

    The Obama administration recently made three major announcements about a proposal to make community college tuition free. This shift offers the tech community an opportunity to share its unique viewpoint on the cost and structure of community colleges. The Web extra at https://youtu.be/ZR_PxPlngKE is an audio recording of author David Alan Grier reading this Computing Education column. View full abstract»

    Clemson University students designed an inexpensive sensor node and cloud computing infrastructure to collect real-time, localized solar irradiation data. This data can be used by consumers and utilities to predict the availability of solar-generated electricity and to manage its use. View full abstract»
