ABSTRACT
A not-so-subtle divide separates empirical and constructionist software research. Constructionists maintain that software research should be about creating technologies, devising new methods. Empiricists are interested in studying and understanding existing approaches. The antagonism between the two camps does not serve our industry well—it needs both modes of research.
INDEX TERMS
empirical research, empirical software engineering, constructionist software engineering
