Applications of data science are growing in popularity in many fields of research and industry, including software engineering. With this group, we aim to merge current state-of-the-art practices in both areas, by improving modern software engineering tools and discovering new ways to develop and maintain code.
Our current areas of interest:
The ACM Joint European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (ESEC/FSE'22)
37th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE'22)
Together with our colleagues from the Product Management and Market Research & Analytics teams, we surveyed the paid subscribers of IntelliJ-based IDEs about their usage of refactorings. We asked the respondents how they use refactorings, how familiar they are with specific refactoring actions and refactoring features in the IDE, and how satisfied they are overall with those refactoring features. 1,183 complete responses were collected. We hope the survey results can be of use for both industrial and academic purposes. Click the link below to find the detailed description of the questionnaire and the raw data.
