  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2018)
    A variety of research methods and techniques are available to SE researchers, and while several overviews exist, there is neither consistency in the research methods covered nor in the terminology used. Furthermore, ...
  • Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J.; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (Taylor & Francis, 2006)
    This article explores how agile practices can reduce three kinds of “distance” — temporal, geographical,and sociocultural — in global software development (GSD). On the basis of two indepth case studies, specific Scrum and ...
  • Mattsson, Anders; Fitzgerald, Brian; Lundell, Bjorn; Lings, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Current techniques for modelling software architecture do not provide sufficient support for modelling of architectural design rules. This is a problem in the context of Model-Driven Development in which it is assumed that ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Deverell, Andrea; Fitzgerald, Brian; Morgan, Lorraine (2005)
    This paper addresses the open source software (OSS) phenomenon from an industry perspective and reveals a number of complexities surrounding the role of OSS in the secondary software sector. It presents the research ...
  • Mc Hugh, Martin; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Fitzgerald, Brian; Stol, Klaas-Jan; Casey, Valentine; Coady, Garret (Springer, 2013)
    Agile development techniques are becoming increasingly popular in the generic software development industry as they appear to offer solutions to the problems associated with following a plan-driven Software Development ...
  • O'Connell, James; Abbas, Manzar; Beecham, Sarah; Buckley, Jim; Chochlov, Muslim; Fitzgerald, Brian; Glynn, Liam G.; Johnson, Kevin; Laffey, John; McNicholas, Bairbre; Nuseibeh, Bashar; O'Callaghan, Michael; O'Keeffe, Ian R.; Razzaq, Abdul; Rekanar, Kaavya; Richardson, Ita; Simpkin, Andrew; Storni, Cristiano; Tsvyatkova, Damyanka; Walsh, Jane C.; Welsh, Thomas; O'Keeffe, Derek (JMIR Publications, 2021)
    Background: Digital contact tracing apps have the potential to augment contact tracing systems and disrupt COVID-19 transmission by rapidly identifying secondary cases prior to the onset of infectiousness and linking them ...
  • Butler, Tom; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 1997)
    There are many in the information systems discipline who believe that user participation is necessary for successful systems development. However, it has been suggested that this belief is neither grounded in theory nor ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hissam, Scott; Lakhani, Karim (Association for Computing Machinery, 2005)
    Building on the success of the first three workshops in the series, which were held at ICSE 2001 (Toronto), ICSE 2002 (Orlando) and ICSE 2003 (Portland), the 4th Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering, ("Collaboration, ...
  • Glynn, Eugene; Fitzgerald, Brian; Exton, Chris (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    There has been a dramatic increase in commercial interest in the potential of Open Source Software (OSS) over the past few years. However, given the many complex and novel issues that surround the use of OSS, the process ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Avgeriou, Paris; Fitzgerald, Brian (Elsevier, 2011)
    Context: Several large software-developing organizations have adopted Open Source Software development (OSSD) practices to develop in-house components that are subsequently integrated into products. This phenomenon is ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Caglayan, Bora; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2017)
    Crowdsourcing is emerging as an alternative outsourcing strategy which is gaining increasing attention in the software engineering community. However, crowdsourcing software development involves complex tasks which differ ...

    The rapid pace with which software needs to be built, together with the increasing need to evaluate changes for end users both quantitatively and qualitatively calls for novel software engineering approaches that focus ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Stol, Klaas-Jan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Throughout its short history, software development has been characterized by harmful disconnects between important activities e.g., planning, development and implementation. The problem is further exacerbated by the ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    In recent years, open source software - more properly, free and open source software - has emerged as one popular solution to the so-called "software crisis". Advocates regard F/OSS as an agile, practice-led initiative ...
  • Krafft, Martin F. (University of Limerick, Department of Computer Science & Information Systems, 2010)
    The Debian Project is possibly the largest FLOSS project, but its processes have not scaled in relation to its growth and complexity. Many aspects of daily tasks require the volunteer contributors to expend time on repetitive, ...
  • Olsson, Carl Magnus (University of Limerick, 2011)
    This thesis takes an exploratory approach to the study of context-aware applications. Such applications use physical conditions from sensors together with human factors such as social setting as cues for adapting in behavior ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Kenny, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Up to now, most open source software (OSS) deployments have been in invisible infrastructure applications running on back-office servers (GNU/Linux, Apache, and so on). Beaumont Hospital in Ireland recently started developing ...
  • Donnellan, Brian; Fitzgerald, Brian (Academic Conferences & Publishing International Ltd.,, 2003)
    There are aspects of New Product Development (NPD) business processes that pose particularly difficult challenges to Organizational Learning systems. Short product and process life cycles compress the available time window ...
  • Lundell, Bjorn; Lings, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2006)
    There are many reasons why an organisation should consider adopting distributed development of software systems and applications, including access to a larger labour pool and a broader skills base, cost advantages, and ...
  • Rocha Silva, Thiago; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2021)
    Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) stories have gained con siderable attention in recent years as an effective way to specify and test user requirements in agile software development projects. External testing frameworks ...
