Benchmarks for bug detection tools are still in their infancy. Though in recent years various tools and techniques were introduced, little effort has been spent on creating a benchmark suite and a harness for a consistent quantitative and qualitative performance measurement. For assessing the performance of a bug detection tool and determining which tool is(More)
Post-deployment maintenance and evolution can account for up to 75% of the cost of developing a software system. Software refactoring can reduce the costs associated with evolution by improving system quality. Although refactoring can yield benefits, the process includes potentially complex, error-prone, tedious and time-consuming tasks. It is these tasks(More)
Up to 75% of the costs associated with the development of software systems occur post-deployment during maintenance and evolution. Software refactoring is a process that can significantly reduce the costs associated with software evolution. Refactoring is defined as internal modification of source code to improve system quality, without change to observable(More)
This work brings a perspective from an employer-sponsored health and wellness program called Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) to the 'quantified self' research. We present preliminary findings from a study with 17 university employees who participated in the GCC. We aimed to explore how participants derived meaningfulness from their self-tracking(More)
The modern student represents a change from the traditional learner. More than ever before, additional resources are available online and yet personalised learning and peer-assistance programs are becoming an essential part of tertiary education delivery. This paper presents the first stage in a user-centred design approach to the analysis of the(More)
Chronobiologic analyses of data collected during one or more continuous 72-hr spans from 3 heart-transplant patients adhering at diurnal activity (0700-2230) and nocturnal rest (2230-0700) reveal statistically significant circadian rhythmicity in the P-P time interval of recipients (P-P)R and the donor (P-P)D, as well as in the reciprocal measure of the(More)
