    Program comprehension is the main activity of the software developers. Although there has been substantial research to support the programmer, the high amount of time developers need to understand source code remained constant over thirty years. Beside more complex software, what might be the reason? In this paper, I explore the past of program-comprehension research, discuss the current state, an... View full abstract»

    There has been tremendous growth in the use of mobile devices over the last few years. This growth has fueled the development of millions of software applications for these mobile devices often called as 'apps'. Current estimates indicate that there are hundreds of thousands of mobile app developers. As a result, in recent years, there has been an increasing amount of software engineering research...

    As software systems play an increasingly important role in our lives, their complexity continues to increase. The increased complexity of software systems makes the assurance of their quality very difficult. Therefore, a significant amount of recent research focuses on the prioritization of software quality assurance efforts. One line of work that has been receiving an increasing amount of attenti...

    Computer Science often seems distant from itsnatural science cousins, especially software engineering whichfeels closer to sociology and psychology than to physics. Physicalmeasurements are often rare in software engineering, except in afew niches. One such important niche is that of software energyconsumption, green mining, green IT, and sustainable computing, which all fall under the umbrella of... View full abstract»

    Spreadsheets can be considered to be the world's most successful end-user programming language. In fact, one could say spreadsheets are programs. This paper starts with a comparison of spreadsheets to software: spreadsheets are similar in terms of applications domains, expressive power and maintainability problems. We then reflect upon what makes spreadsheets successful: liveness, directness and a... View full abstract»

    Producing great software requires great productive developers. Yet, what does it really mean for an individual developer to be productive, and what can we do to best help developers to be productive? To answer these questions, research has traditionally focused on measuring a developer's output and therefore suffered from two drawbacks: the measures can only be calculated after a developer finishe...

    The release engineering process is the process that brings high quality code changes from a developer's workspace to the end user, encompassing code change integration, continuous integration, build system specifications, infrastructure-as-code, deployment and release. Recent practices of continuous delivery, which bring new content to the end user in days or hours rather than months or years, hav... View full abstract»

    The web has had a significant impact on our lives. A technology that was initially created for sharing documents across the network has evolved into a strong medium for developing and distributing software applications. In this paper, we first provide a concise overview of the evolution of the web itself. We then focus on some of the main industrial and research achievements in software analysis a...
