Event Details:
Summary: Having found that traditional software engineering approaches and tools were not used by academic researchers in the United States and Australia, a new Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) was created to tailor software engineering more appropriately to this environment. This talk introduces the ideals embedded in the new SDLC and explains how they were instantiated in a three-year experiment involving multiple researchers on independent projects. The new approaches were shown to have a significant impact when results were compared to a control group. The talk will introduce some of the ideas and tools which led to this impact.
