Short Course 1  - Interactive Repository Mining for Continuous Process Improvement

Monday, October 28, 2019 -  9:00 am - 3:45 pm


The short course aims to introduce interactive repository mining in order to make continuous processes. The short course will cover 4 topics: interactivity, data collection, analysis and visualization. For interactivity, a Jupyter Notebook will be presented, which can be used for exploratory tasks and dashboard building. For data collection, a GitHub API will be used to get questions from a repository and a PyGit2 library to browse history. For data analysis, a panda file will be used. Finally, for data visualization, the Matplotlib library will be used. The short course will be guided by tasks such as observing defect density over time, finding out who makes the most contributions to the project over time, measuring test coverage over time, and so on.

Short Course 2 - Devops: Principles and Practices

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 - 9:00 am - 3:45 pm


Around 2009, DevOps emerges in a context where development teams are able to leverage their productivity in response to frequent market demands and high quality requirements. However, the organizational separation between development and operations (systems administration) sectors in companies causes a disruption in productivity, due to instabilities caused in production environments by frequent changes. In this context, the DevOps movement, based on agile principles and collaboration between software development and operation sectors, gains momentum with numerous intended benefits spanning technical and social aspects. This short course introduces the concepts, principles, practices, and tools associated with the DevOps concept.

Short Course 3 - Measuring the Quality of Interactive Systems

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 9:00am - 12:00pm


Web systems, Ubiquitous computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities and son on brought a bid diversity of interactive systems supporting several of our daily activities. To ensure the improvement and adoption of these applications, it is essential to assess their quality. During several decades we have been evaluating interactive applications with the use of questionnaires. Several standards questionnaires have been proposed. In order to be precise about which quality characteristic we are interested to improve or to assure in the application, measurements must be applied. This course aims at presenting step by step how to define measures (known also as metrics) for interactive systems and procedures to collect, apply and validate them. From the basic definitions and methods about measurement, we show procedures and document materials that we have applied for more than fifteen years in the measurement definition of different types of interactive systems.

Short Course 4 - Using Qualitative Analysis in Software Quality Research and Practice

Thursday, , October 31, 2019 - 9:00am - 12:00pm


Several sources are used to collect research data and aspects of software quality practice. These data are analyzed quantitatively or qualitatively. Quantitative analysis provides important indications and evidence for evaluating results of such research and software quality practices. Qualitative data can help researchers and practitioners understand more deeply a particular phenomenon or problem that cannot be expressed quantitatively by providing a richer analysis of information and projections for improvement in software organizations. Applying qualitative analysis within software organizations provides a more detailed understanding of the employee perspective and can assist in identifying product improvements and software processes. This short course covers how you can apply qualitative analysis on software quality. For this, qualitative research methods are presented and discussed with the focus of application in both research and practice. In addition, cases of qualitative analysis in research and practice are discussed, showing step by step and how to enable this type of analysis within software organizations focusing on process and product improvement. By the end of this short course, participants are expected to be able to plan and perform qualitative analysis in research and within software organizations, drawing the full potential of this method as a vector for improving software quality.
