Two’s Company, Three’s a Crowd… in crowdsourcing software development

Crowdsourcing software development is an emerging topic within the software engineering community. While there are numerous studies on the topic of “crowdsourcing,” as far as we know there have been no case studies of crowdsourcing software development. We are happy to report that our paper entitled “Two’s Company, Three’s a Crowd: A Case Study of Crowdsourcing Software Development” was accepted in the technical track of the 36th International Conference on Software Engineering. Pre-prints will be available in a few weeks. Meanwhile, you can find the Research Protocol here.

Agile Methods in Regulated Domains

Our paper “Scaling Agile Methods to Regulated Environments: An Industry Case Study” was accepted in the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), in the Software Engineering in Practice (SEIP) track. The case study was conducted a QUMAS, a company based in Cork. The paper was written by: Brian Fitzgerald, Klaas-Jan Stol, and Ryan O’Sullivan and Donal O’Brien from QUMAS.
