Multi-Touch Collaboration for Software Exploration


Boccuzzo, S; Gall, H C (2010). Multi-Touch Collaboration for Software Exploration. In: International Conference on Program Comprehension, Braga, Portugal, 30 June 2010 - 2 July 2010.

Abstract

Software systems have grown so complex and their design is so intricate that no individual can grasp the whole picture. Touch screen technology combined with 3D software visualization offers a promising way for the software engineers involved in a project to share knowledge about a software system in an intuitive way. In this paper we present first results on how such emerging technologies can be combined to support software exploration tasks, such as identifying high-impact changes or revealing problematic parts of the design. As demonstrated with a scenario, this turns the collaborative environment into a vehicle usable during software reviews.
