Mobile phones have been closed environments until recent years. The change brought by open platform technologies such as the Symbian operating system and Java technologies has opened up a significant business opportunity for anyone to develop application software such as games for mobile terminals. However, developing mobile applications is currently a(More)
Extreme programming (XP) is a well known agile software development method. While a number of experience reports have been published in recent years, agile software development in general and XP in particular have strongly been criticized for the lack of empirical data. This paper reports a survey of the empirical data obtained from a controlled case study(More)
Extreme programming (XP), similar to other agile software development methods, values close collaboration with customers. One of the XP's practices suggests that customer should be 100% available for the development team. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the XP customer role is costly, difficult and demanding. However, very few empirical studies have been(More)
Post-mortem analysis (PMA) is an empirical study method in software engineering. It is an important, but often forgotten, way of gathering empirical knowledge. PMA is ideally performed either soon after the most important milestones and events or at the end of a project, both in successful and unsuccessful software development projects. The benefit is that(More)
The aquaculture industry is increasingly replacing fishmeal in feeds for carnivorous fish with soybean meal (SBM). This diet change presents a potential for genotype-environment (G x E) interactions. We tested whether current salmonid breeding programmes that evaluate and select within fishmeal diets also improve growth and efficiency on potential future(More)
While Extreme programming (XP) relies on certain principles, it requires an extensive set of tools to enable an effective execution of its practices. In many companies, putting stories on the board may not be sufficient for managing rapidly changing requirements. The objective of this paper is to report the results from a study where a requirement(More)
In the recent years, the software engineering community has been showing a growing interest in agile development methodologies. These have emerged out of the need for faster, more flexible and efficient processes for software development. Currently the best known agile method is extreme programming (XP). XP addresses issues concerning changing requirements(More)
The International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI) is an independent international scientific organization that seeks to improve the well-being of present and future generations of people by enhancing conservation and the deployment of agricultural biodiversity on farms and in forests. It is one of 15 Future Harvest Centres supported by the(More)
