    One of the factors limiting the wider acceptance of computer science (and hence software engineering) as a `Science and Engineering' discipline is the lack of established experimental practices that can be used to provide empirical support for our ideas. While such techniques do exist, they are not widely known, and do not usually appear in any curricula. This paper described an introductory cours... View full abstract»
