  • Khondhu, Jymit; Capiluppi, Andrea; Stol, Klaas-Jan (Springer, 2013)
    Open Source Software (OSS) proponents suggest that when developers lose interest in their project, their last duty is to “hand it off to a competent successor.” However, the mechanisms of such a hand-off are not clear, ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian (2003)
    The need for rigorous academic investigation into open source software (OSS) is pronounced. If the media hype surrounding the topic since 1998 has a kernel of truth, then OSS promises to revolutionise the ways in which ...
  • Goldkuhl, Goran; Agerfalk, Par J. (2004)
    Development and implementation of an information system (IS) is a very demanding task, and many times the expectations from such endeavours are not met. Unexpected negative effects often arise while anticipated positive ...

  • Dobson, Simon; Farragher, Linda (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 2000)
    Most modern programming languages are complex and feature rich. Whilst this is (sometimes) an advantage for industrial-strength applications, it complicates both language teaching and language research. We describe our ...
  • Buckley, Jim; Mooney, Sean; Rosik, Jacek; Ali, Nour (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Architectural drift is a widely cited problem in software engineering, where the implementation of a software system diverges from the designed architecture over time causing architecture inconsistencies. Previous work ...
  • Rabiser, Rick; O'Leary, Pádraig; Richardson, Ita (2010)
