We would like to know if Java developers are retrofitting applications to become concurrent and, to get better performance on multicore machines. Also, we would like to know what concurrent programming constructs they currently use. Evidence of how programmers write concurrent programs can help other programmers to be more efficient when using the available(More)
Energy consumption has become an increasingly important topic in software development, especially due to the ubiquity of mobile devices, and the choice of programming language can directly impact battery life. This paper presents a study on the issue of energy efficiency on the Android platform, comparing the performance and energy consumption of 33(More)
Model-Based Development is a design methodology used for automotive embedded software, where the engineering process involving OEM and suppliers can bring benefits providing an efficient exchange of information, workflow and tool chain adequately and standardized. Despite, with the growing demand for new functions for next generation of vehicles, we(More)
Recently, Apple released Swift, a modern programming language built to be the successor of Objective-C. In less than a year and a half after its first release, Swift became one of the most popular programming languages in the world, considering different popularity measures. A significant part of this success is due to Apple's strict control over its(More)
This presentation describes our experience in combining speech recognition software, clinical review software, and other software products on a single computer. Different processor speeds, random access memory (RAM), and computer costs were evaluated. We found that combining continuous speech recognition software with Digital Imaging and Communications in(More)
Concurrent programming is notably known as a hard discipline. Over the last few years, great strides have been made in improving concurrent programming abstractions, techniques, and tools to ease concurrent programming practice. However, little effort has been placed on assessing what are the real-world problems faced by developers when writing concurrent(More)
