AbstractComputer programs (code) are integral to the functions of current society. Yet, little is known about why programmers trust code they did not create. The current paper applied the heuristic-systematic model (HSM) of information processing to perceptions of code trust for reuse. The studies explored transparency (readability and organization) and reputation (source) as factors that influenced trust perceptions and time spent reviewing code using professional programmers.
