"I have seen a lot of students that wrote papers, but never students in their second year"
Moritz Beller and Andy Zaidman (Software Technology) are amazed by a group of five CS students. The students wrote a Tool Demo Paper based on their submission in the annual Context Project, in which students work on a piece of software. The paper has been admitted and is now one of the top two submissions at the International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering, which is taking place this week in Klagenfurt, Austria. The can write a blog post about their paper that will be published on IEEE Software.
Andy: ""I have seen a lot of students that wrote papers, but never students in their second year. Tim Buckers, Clinton Cao, Michiel Doesburg, Boning Gong, Sunwei Wang really went all the way and did not take the fastest route from A to B. There was a great group dynamic and they were truly interested in creating the best tool they could."
Moritz: "Their paper is about statistical analyses tools, these are the tools developers use to test their own coding based on different criteria. We call these tools ASATs, and there are a lot of them. It is therefore very useful to map the differences between all these rools. The students have created a visualization of three tools, so a developer can easily determine which tool to use. This visualization technique can be fitted with different tools, so numerous tools can be added."
The tool is free to use and can be downloaded on : https://clintoncao.github.io/uav
