We recently published a paper that describes a framework to highlight human and social aspects in empirical software engineering research. This framework brings elements from the Design Science research we have done, research my student Courtney Williams did for her Master’s thesis, the keynote I gave at ICSE 2019, and...

We presented our TSE 2019 paper that describes a theory of developer productivity and satisfaction at ICSE 2020, the International Conference on Software Engineering, scheduled for Seoul, Korea. The research in this paper followed a three month sabbatical I spent working with the 1ES (one engineering system) at Microsoft in...

I presented a keynote at ICSE’2019 (the International Conference on Software Engineering Engineering) in Montreal, Canada. In this talk I challenged our community to consider that although much of our research is aimed at improving developer productivity or supporting developers in some way, we often do not directly study human...

The 2016 International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering hosted a panel of prominent software engineering researchers moderated by Margaret-Anne Storey. The slides presented during the panel can be found here This post builds on the summary written by Diomidis Spinellis and the video recording available on YouTube Our...
