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.
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.
