Lab Description

Important judgments, decisions and choices in software engineering should be based on critical collection and evaluation of best evidence from research and practise. In this course I introduce evidence-based software engineering and explain how this approach can be used to improve decisions. Topics that will be covered include: How to disclose myths and fashion in software engineering, empirical research methods, collection of practise-based evidence, and challenges related to learning from experience.
The goal is that the participants, as researchers and software practitioners, will be better able to formulate precise problems, collect and evaluate relevant and valid evidence, summarise the evidence and apply the knowledge properly.
