Replications play a key role in Empirical Software Engineering by allowing the community to build knowledge about which results or observations hold under which conditions. Therefore, not only can a… Continue Reading
Computational scientists developing software for HPC systems face unique software engineering issues. Attempts to transfer SE technologies to this domain must take these issues into account.
Several empirical studies have been carried out with college students as subjects in the last few years. Researchers often use these studies to pilot experiments before they are carried out in… Continue Reading
There is a growing interest in empirical study in software engineering, both for validating mature technologies and for guiding improvements of less-mature technologies. This paper introduces an… Continue Reading
With today's ever increasing demands on software, software developers must produce software that can be changed without the risk of degrading the software architecture. One way to address software… Continue Reading
value of experimental replications has been well established. In order for the replicating researcher and the community to receive the greatest benefit from a replication, the right information about… Continue Reading
The need for high performance computing applications for computational science and engineering projects is growing rapidly, yet there have been few detailed studies of the software engineering… Continue Reading
StackOverflow (SO) contributors are recognized by reputation scores. Earning a high reputation score requires technical expertise and sustained effort. We analyzed the SO data from four perspectives… Continue Reading
Recently the awareness of the importance of replicating studies has been growing in the empirical software engineering community. The results of any one study cannot simply be extrapolated to all… Continue Reading
This paper describes observations about software development for high end computing that we have made from several environments. We conducted a series of case studies of different types of codes,… Continue Reading
