ICSE 2002 Industry Presentations
ICSE 2002 will feature two talks concerning the software engineering industry. Abstract information will be posted here as soon as it is available.
S3.4: Software Component Quality Assessment in Industry
Ian Gorton, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
This presentation describes the authors' experiences of initiating and sustaining a project at CSIRO aimed at accelerating the successful adoption of COTS middleware technologies in large business and scientific information systems. The projects aims are described, along with example outcomes and an assessment of what is needed for wide-scale software component quality assessments to succeed.
S4.4: Accelerating Software Development Through Collaboration
Larry Augustine, VA Software
In early 1999, VA Software launched a project to understand how the Internet development community had been able to produce software faster and with higher quality than comparable commercially available alternatives. Our goal was simple: determine how to make more software development projects successful.
We discovered that successful Internet community projects employed a number of practices that were not well characterized by traditional software engineering methodologies. We now refer to those practices as Collaborative Software Development or CSD. Late in 1999 we developed the SourceForge platform to make it easy for even small software development projects to employ those practices, and in November of 1999 launched the SourceForge.net web site based on the SourceForge platform. The site was an overwhelming success, and in less than two years, grew to support more than 27,000 software development projects and over a quarter million software developers worldwide.
SourceForge.net affords us an unequaled test bed for understanding CSD. In response to demand from companies seeking to enable CSD within their organizations, we announced a commercial version of the SourceForge platform, SourceForge Enterprise Edition, in August 2001. This presentation will describe the principles of CSD, the software development pain points those principles address, and our experience enabling CSD with the SourceForge platform.
