An approach for collaborative code reviews using multi-touch technology


Müller, Sebastian; Würsch, Michael; Fritz, Thomas; Gall, Harald (2012). An approach for collaborative code reviews using 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

Code reviews are an effective mechanism to improve software quality, but often fall short in the development of software. To improve the desirability and ease of code reviews, we introduce an approach that explores how multi-touch interfaces can support code reviews and can make them more collaborative. Our approach provides users with features to collaboratively find and investigate code smells, annotate source code and generate review reports using gesture recognition and a Microsoft Surface Table. In a preliminary evaluation, subjects generally liked the prototypical implementation of our approach for performing code review tasks.

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.
