Title:ClubDev: A System for Supporting Group-Based Software Development Activities
Author(s):Biehl, Jacob T.; Baker, William T.; Bailey, Brian P.
Subject(s):software development
Abstract:Existing tools do not adequately support the emerging practice of group-based software development, which is aimed at improving software quality. In this paper, we present a new, fully functional system called ClubDev. Our system allows developers to quickly share off-the-shelf applications between personal devices and available large displays, perform near simultaneous input with applications, and mediate which applications are shared and when. The benefit of using our system is that it better supports the types of activities that are desired, but often not able to be realized during group development. Our system was informed via a series of surveys and interviews with developers experienced in group development practice. Results from an initial evaluation showed that users want and are able to utilize our system during realistic group development activities. Practitioners can download and use our system, while researchers can leverage our system framework to create and test new interfaces for co-located collaborative work.
