Rethinking Mining Software Repositories: On the Importance of Manual Analysis for AutomationSpeaker: Walid Maalej – Hamburg, Germany
Topic(s): Software Engineering and Programming
Mining Software Repositories (MSR) represents not only a vivid community within the field of Software Engineering but also a research methodology, which has become very popular among software researchers over the last two decades.
Originally, MSR focused on algorithmically analyzing the change history in open source code repositories for the ultimate goal of predicting software defects.
In this talk, I will discuss how MSR should be (and in fact is being) rethought to include manual, qualitative elements and to cover other types of software data and artifacts. This increases the relevance of MSR to practice and to the whole software lifecycle: towards a “true” Data-Driven Software Engineering.
