The software developer as the knowledge worker of tomorrow
Margaret-Anne (Peggy) Storey is a Professor of Computer Science and the Director of the Software Engineering program at the University of Victoria on the West Coast of Canada. She holds a Canada Research Chair in Human and Social Aspects of Software Engineering. Her research goal is to understand how technology can help people explore, understand, and share complex information and knowledge. She evaluates and applies techniques from knowledge engineering, social software, and visual interface design to applications such as collaborative software development, program comprehension, biomedical ontology development, and learning in Web-based environments.
She will in this presentation give an overview of some of her recent projects, sharing how she uses mixed research methods to investigate how developers use tools such as social media and gamification to collaborate with one another.
This talk is a part of the ELLIIT Workshop 2017.

The science week will be kicked-off with a concert on 23 April at 17:00 pm. The concert is free of charge but will require a ticket to ensure a seat (a small fee of 20 SEK will be charged). Musicians will play music from famous TV- and computer games in the City Hall here in Lund. The event will be held in Swedish but can still be enjoyed by English-speaking participants.
