Sebastian Elbaum


Motivation

Motivation

  • End-user programmers create large amounts of software in the form of spreadsheets, web authoring tools, matlab, …

  • The software these users create is often undependable

  • Existing software engineering techniques and tools are not directly suitable to assist them

  • WEUSE aims at helping researchers to

    • understand problems faced by end-user programmers

    • be aware of latest developments in this area

    • establish connections with other researchers


What we agree on small list

What we agree on(small list)

  • Multidisciplinary nature of research problem

  • Interesting and valuable


Qualified agreements on end user programmers

Qualified Agreementson end user programmers

  • End users are NOT like us

    • But in some domains…

  • Shallow programmers

    • How shallow? Gray areas…

  • Short-term view of life cycle

    • Difference from average programmer?

  • They know their domain

    • But they may not be able to explain it


Awareness of dimensionality of small community

Awareness of dimensionalityof small “community”

  • Environments (web, spreadsheet, matlab, flow, …)

  • Usage (ways and levels of interaction)

  • Research (analytical, empirical on people, empirical on techniques, combinations)

  • Task-phase (lifecycle tasks, activities, objectives)


Action items

Action items

  • Characterize end user population

  • Define “sufficient” dependability

  • Focus on cost-effectiveness

  • Build collage of studies for technique assessment,balance of control, cost and exposure

  • Build community

    • To accelerate progress

    • To promote ideas and raise awareness of impact
