Best of (our) Empirical Open Source Research

Prof. Dirk Riehle
Friedrich-Alexander University
Erlangen-Nürnberg

Date: March 4, 2013 (Monday)
Time: 3:30 - 4:30 pm
Venue: SCT716, Cha Chi Ming Science Tower, Ho Sin Hang Campus

Abstract
Open source software is publically developed software. Thus, for the first time, we can broadly analyze in data-driven detail how people program, how bugs come about, and how we could improve our tools. In this talk, I'll review six years of our open source empirical (data) research and highlight the most interesting insights, including how different (or not) open source is from closed source programming.
