Software development’s organizational design is often characterized by geographical dispersion and virtual team work. In this setup, communication is an essential task. We study this task by analyzing the association between communication structure and efficiency of the issue tracking process. This key process within software development is primarily carried out digitally and thus provides a suitable data set for analysis. We find that communication structure is associated with issue tracking… Expand
Debunking the Myth That Upfront Requirements Are Infeasible for Scientific Computing Software
TLDR
This paper shows requirements are feasible with the following: i) an appropriate perspective ('faking' the final documentation as if requirements were correct and complete from the start, and gathering requirements as if for a family of programs). Expand
