Hi there! I am Felienne. Since 2013 I am assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, where I research end-user programming. End-user programming is programming for everyone that does think of themselves as a programmer. In my PhD dissertation I worked on applying methods from software engineering to spreadsheets. During my PhD I founded a company called Infotron, based on the tools and techniques for spreadsheet analysis I developed. Recently, I have also worked on software engineering for kids (link in Dutch). I am regularly asked to speak about my research on conferences. Me, my research and my company have gotten some media coverage over the last years. I have some programming related hobbies too :) I teach a bunch of kids programming every Saturday in a local community center. I am in the board of Devnology, a Dutch developer community. I am also one of the people behind Joy of Coding conference, a one day developer conference in Rotterdam.
Two things I love combined: type systems and ancient languages. This should be fun! There is quite some Greek language material available digitally, especially the Greek bible has been manually analyzed a lot, both in terms of word analysis, and structural analysis. This however takes a lot of work, and issues that scholars run into[…]
SCAM’16 is becoming “The Tweeting Conference.” In this guest post, I, Moritz Beller, will explain how I came up with this slogan and what it means. The idea of increasing SCAM’s visibility was drafted out together with my social media co-chair Felienne and the SCAM organizing committee. The aim of Twitter-ifying the conference is to[…]
Observations on Knowledge Transfer of Professional Software Developers during Pair Programming — Franz Zieris
Franz want to understand how knowledge transfer works in pair programming., and then use to do define patterns and best practices. For that, we need data! Franz asked companies to be allowed to record screens and audio during real programing activity. Franz now has 50 sessions from 11 companies. A perspective 🙂 He selected 13[…]
Klaas-Jan* wanted to know how open-source developers pick their tools, and for that used the Delphi method, which involves setting up a panel. 21 panelists were selected out of 429 nominees, by recruiting people via mailing lists. The pool was then thinned into 21, by taking into account 4 dimensions: work in teams, versus alone, the[…]
Spreadsheets at ICSE. Woo! If you have used spreadsheets, you know that it is a common scenario to have multiple versions of the same file, for different months, projects or clients. But, spreadsheets aren’t commonly under version control, while spreadsheets stay alive for 5 years and are used then by 13 users. We all know[…]
