André was recognized as one of the 2013 ACM Distinguished Scientists. A big congratulations to André!
SDCL visited GE Research labs in San Ramon. We presented our recent work on software design collaboration and crowd coding. We also had the opportunity to discuss interesting industry challenges in the fields of user experience and collaboration technology.
We kindly thank Roberto Silveira for all the awesome meetings we had with his research peers.
Thomas La Toza and Christian Adriano have just attended CrowdConf. We received very interesting feedback on our CrowdCode platform. We also had extremely engaging conversations with people working on challenging crowdsourcing problems.
The SDCL just attended the SCALE conference at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center.
There we had the great opportunity to share our current work on on crowd development,
crowd debugging, and social-technical code search. We also had the privilege to
hear interesting talks and have engaging discussion by and with IBMers and other SCALE members.

We are very excited to welcome Namrata Puri to the laboratory. She is joining us as a new M.S. student and will be working on the UI of CodeExchange.
Congratulations to Nick Mangano, who successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation entitled ‘Calico: an early-phase software design tool’ on September 18, with a committee of Gary Olson, David Redmiles, and Marian Petre (in addition to his advisor, of course). After 6 years of very hard work, Nick is now off to make a commercial version of Calico that we hope will be a smashing success!
We attended the FuSE 2013 conference at Microsoft Research! Lots of interesting talks and engaging discussions on the future of software engineering.
SDCL is excited to welcome visitors to our lab for the ISR Research Forum. We have demos lined up of several of our research projects and are looking forward to exchanging ideas with both fellow researchers and developers from industry. If you’re in Irvine, we hope to see you there!
