Gamification of software engineering tasks improve developer engagement, but has been limited to mechanisms such as points and badges. We believe that a tool that provides developers an interface analogous to computer games can represent the gamification of software engineering tasks more effectively via software visualization. We introduce CityVR – an interactive software visualization tool that implements the city metaphor technique using virtual reality in an immersive 3D environment medium… CONTINUE READING
