Pair Programming and Software Defects--A Large, Industrial Case Study
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
By Enrico di Bella,Ilenia Fronza,Nattakarn Phaphoom,Alberto Sillitti,Giancarlo Succi,Jelena Vlasenko
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 930-953
In the last decade, there has been increasing interest in pair programming (PP). However, despite the existing work, there is still a lack of substantial evidence of the effects of PP in industrial environments. To address this issue, we have analyzed the ...
An interpretation of the results of the analysis of pair programming during novices integration in a team
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement, International Symposium on
By Ilenia Fronza, Alberto Sillitti, Giancarlo Succi
Issue Date:October 2009
pp. 225-235
In this paper we present a study on how Pair Programming (PP) facilitates the introduction of new developers (novices) in a team. Data has been collected non-invasively on how people paired in an industrial team of developers for 10 months; during such tim...
Predicting Development Effort from User Stories
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement, International Symposium on
By Pekka Abrahamsson,Ilenia Fronza,Raimund Moser,Jelena Vlasenko,Witold Pedrycz
Issue Date:September 2011
pp. 400-403
In this paper, we propose a method for predicting development effort based on user stories. Such approach is well suited for Agile software projects where requirements are developed along with the project and only sketched in a rough manner. We apply the p...
Understanding how novices are integrated in a team analysing their tool usage
Found in: Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on on Software and Systems Process (ICSSP '11)
By Alberto Sillitti, Giancarlo Succi, Ilenia Fronza, Jelena Vlasenko
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 204-207
Novices' activities can be very different from those of experienced developers. The analysis of tool usage can propose early insights on novices integration in the team and also provide a method to compare their activities with experts. In this work we com...
Analyzing tool usage to understand to what extent experts change their activities when mentoring
Found in: Proceeding of the 2nd international workshop on Emerging trends in software metrics (WETSoM '11)
By Ilenia Fronza, Jelena Vlasenko, Pekka Abrahamsson
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 19-22
Automated In-Process Software Engineering Measurement and Analysis (AISEMA) systems represent a major advancement in tracking non-invasively the activities of developers. We have built on the top of an AISEMA system a model that enables to understand bette...
