This paper presents work practice data of the daily activities of software engineers. Four separate studies are presented; one looking longitudinally at an individual SE; two looking at a software engineering group; and one looking at companywide tool usage statistics. We also discuss the advantages in considering work practices in designing tools for software engineers, and i clude some requirements for a tool we have developed as a result of our studies.
