Mining Development Data to Understand and Improve Software Engineering Processes in HPC Projects
The IDEAS Productivity project, in partnership with the DOE Computing Facilities of the ALCF, OLCF, and NERSC and the DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) has resumed the webinar series on Best Practices for HPC Software Developers, which we began in 2016.
As part of this series, we offer one-hour webinars on topics in scientific software development and high-performance computing, approximately once a month. The July webinar is titled Mining Development Data to Understand and Improve Software Engineering Processes in HPC Projects, and will be presented by Boyana Norris (University of Oregon). The webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 at 12:00 pm CT.
The webinar will explore the role of software-related data mining tools in supporting productive development of high-performance scientific software. The webinar will discuss a variety of existing and emerging tools for analyzing code, git, emails, issues, test results, and dependencies, with the long-term goal of improving the understanding of development processes and enhancing developer productivity. The webinar will include specific analysis examples by applying a subset of those tools to ECP projects.
