Best of (our) Empirical Open Source Research
Prof. Dirk Riehle
Date: March 4, 2013 (Monday)
Time: 3:30 - 4:30 pm
Venue: SCT716, Cha Chi Ming Science Tower, Ho Sin Hang Campus
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.
Prof. Dr. Dirk Riehle is the Professor for Open Source Software at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. Before joining academia, Riehle led the Open Source Research Group at SAP Labs, LLC, in Palo Alto, California (Silicon Valley). Riehle founded the Wiki Symposium, a conference dedicated to wiki research and practice. He was also the lead architect of the first UML virtual machine. He is interested in open source software engineering and agile methods, complexity science and human collaboration, and software design. Prof. Riehle holds a Ph.D. in computer science from ETH Zürich and an M.B.A. from Stanford Business School. He welcomes email at firstname.lastname@example.org, blogs at http://dirkriehle.com, and tweets as @dirkriehle.
