Tangible software modeling with multi-touch technology


Müller, Sebastian; Würsch, Michael; Schöni, Pascal; Ghezzi, Giacomo; Giger, Emanuel; Gall, Harald (2012). Tangible software modeling with multi-touch technology. In: 5th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE 2012), Zurich, 2 June 2012 - 2 June 2012.

Abstract

This paper describes a design study that explores how multi-touch devices can provide support for developers when carrying out modeling tasks in software development. We investigate how well a multi-touch augmented approach performs compared to a traditional approach and if this new approach can be integrated into existing software engineering processes. For that, we have implemented a fully functional prototype, which is concerned with agreeing on a good objectoriented design through the course of a Class Responsibility Collaboration (CRC) modeling session. We describe how multitouch technology helps with integrating CRC cards with larger design methodologies, without loosing their unique physical interaction aspect. We observed high-potential in augmenting such informal sessions in software engineering with novel user interfaces, such as those provided by multi-touch devices.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
