We have recently begun an extensive evaluation of our tool that recognises the major Git workflows from an examination of the commit and branching patterns in use in a Git repository. We’ve created a common framework for defining Git workflows that allows the relationships between different workflows to be clearly identified and understood. We want to see if the framework is precise enough to allow us to accurately identify the workflows in use on a project.
We’re pleased to welcome Fadi Arafeh to the IoC@UoM team, as a summer vacation project student. Fadi is working with us to adapt our RoboTA tool for course units outside the School of Computer Science. He’ll also be developing code for our Git Workflows project.
Over the summer, Chidera Unigwe joins our team as a vacation project student. His task is to develop an intelligent trouble-shooter wiki to help our students deal with problems they encounter in our software engineering labs.
Our second year software engineering course units require our students to get to grips with an industrial strength toolkit very quickly, including Git, GitLab, JUnit, Ant, Maven, Spring, Jenkins and Eclipse. Chidera will take staff expertise on the kinds of technical problems encountered, and their solutions, and convert them into a self-help resource that all our students can access whenever they need.
The trouble-shooter will be in use by our students from September 2018 onwards.
Welcome to the team, Chidera!
