The purpose of STEW is to encourage and promote cooperation between different industry sectors, between academia/institutes and companies, and with the public sector.
This year we seek presentations related to improving efficiency by 1) letting the computers do more of the software development, or 2) by developing software together across organizational boundaries. This year’s themes are:
- Let the machine do the job – AI and ML in software development
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are hot topics in almost every domain. Also in software development the technologies can be used to assist developers to be more efficient, and for users to get software more tailored to their needs. In software, the methods come with different names, such as data-driven software development and continuous experimentation. How can we get the machines to do the jobs for us?
- Let us do it together – Open source in software development
Open source software becomes part of more and more proprietary products and services. It may help by sharing the burden of evolution of commodity software, that is not competitive for any, but needed by all. However, working towards open software communities requires new skills and knowledge, both for developers and managers. What are the opportunities and challenges of working together in open source software development, and how can we make it better?
