  • Toosi, Farshad Ghassemi; Nikolov, Nikola S.; Eaton, Malachy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    We report on our findings using a genetic algorithm (GA) as a preprocessing step for force-directed graph drawings to find a smart initial vertex layout (instead of a random initial layout) to decrease the number of edge ...
  • Lopez, Tamara; Petre, Marian; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Software rarely works as intended when it is initially written. Things go wrong, and developers are commonly understood to form theories and strategies to deal with them. Much of this knowledge relates to ephemeral flaws ...
  • Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Global software development is a business model that involves software development distributed beyond national boundaries. However, distributed nature of the processes makes it very challenging to communicate and collaborate. ...
  • Deshpande, Sadhana; Beecham, Sarah; Richardson, Ita (Springer, 2011)
    Global software development (GSD) is often impeded by global distance which may be geographical, cultural, temporal or linguistic. When compared to a collocated setting, specific methods are required to coordinate a range ...
  • Noll, John; Beecham, Sarah; Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    While organisations recognise the advantages offered by global software development, there are many socio-technical barriers that affect successful collaboration in this inter-cultural environment. In this paper we present ...
  • Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Ó Conchúir, Eoin; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2006)
    Global software development (GSD) is a phenomenon that is receiving considerable interest from companies all over the world. In GSD, stakeholders from different national and organizational cultures are involved in developing ...
  • Ó Conchúir, Eoin (University of Limerick, Department of Computer Science & Information Systems, 2010)
    Global software development (GSD) encompasses all software development where people located in different parts of the world are working together to produce software. Software development in itself is a complex process. GSD ...
  • Ó Conchúir, Eoin; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2006)
    In existing global software development (GSD) literature, much focus has been on identifying the challenges that practitioners may face (such as socio-cultural and temporal distance issues), while potential benefits have ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Moore, Sarah; Paulish, Daniel; Casey, Valentine; Zage, Dolores (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Given the requirement for software engineering graduates to operate in Global Software Development (GSD) environments, educators need to develop teaching methods to enhance and instill GSD knowledge in their students. In ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Ralph, Paul; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    Grounded Theory (GT) has proved an extremely useful research approach in several fields including medical sociology, nursing, education and management theory. However, GT is a complex method based on an inductive paradigm ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J. (2004)
    The research interests of information systems (IS) researchers often lead to a tension between theory development on the one hand and practical application, such as the implementation of computer applications or business ...
  • Kroll, Josiane; Richardson, Ita; Audy, Jorge L.N.; Fernandez, Jude (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    In Follow-the-sun (FTS) software projects, handoffs are performed at the beginning and the end of each working day shift. Handoff efficiency is determined by the quality of knowledge transfer and the length of time ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Avram, Gabriela; Deshpande, Sadhana; Casey, Valentine (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    In a globalised world economy, small and mediumsized companies (SMEs) are now entering the global software engineering (GSE) arena, but their involvement is more often opportunistic than carefully planned. Considered until ...
  • McInerney, Clare (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    There has been a decline in the number of students studying mathematics, science and computing at third-level in Ireland. This may be because Ireland does not have a computing curriculum. However, in the UK higher education ...
  • Hamilton, Geoff W. (2012)
    In this paper, we describe a hierarchy of program transformers in which the transformer at each level of the hierarchy builds on top of the transformers at lower levels. The program transformer at the bottom of the ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2015)
    Empirical research studies are the principal mechanism through which the software engineering research community studies and learns from software engineering practice. The focus on empirical studies has increased ...
  • Krafft, Martin F; Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) has come to play a critical role in the global software industry. Organizations are widely adopting FOSS and interacting with open source communities, and hence organizations have a ...
  • Huo, Ming; Verner, June; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Zhu, Liming (2004)
    Software quality is one of our most important software concerns. Agile methods may produce software faster but we also need to know how they meet our quality requirements. In this paper we compare the waterfall model ...
  • Morgan, Lorraine; Finnegan, Patrick (2007)
    Much of the assessment of OSS benefits and drawbacks has been based on anecdotal evidence appearing in practitioner publications. Due to its focus on software development, such work neglects whether managerial perceptions ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz; Grigore, Radu; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    When configuring customizable software, it is useful to provide interactive tool-support that ensures that the configuration does not breach given constraints. But, when is a configuration complete and how can the tool ...
