CCSL-USP é quem falará sobre qualidade de código na Campus Party 2011

Beleza de Código

O fator mais importante que determina a qualidade de um software é a qualidade de seu código-fonte. Qualidade do código-fonte pode ser medida e analisada de várias maneiras, desde métricas objetivas de código-fonte como coesão e acoplamento até aspectos subjetivos como clareza e, levando ao extremo, beleza. Uma discussão sobre o que é a beleza no desenvolvimento de software.

Workshop with Dr. Maged Ali (Brunel University, UK)

This wednesday, August 18th, at 14:00, Dr. Maged Ali will give a presentation on cultural aspects of Information Technology. The study of culture is rooted in sociology, social psychology, and anthropology. In particular, cultural anthropology seeks to understand the similarities and differences among groups of people in the contemporary world. Within the last 20 years, the practical relevance of researching cultural issues, and especially comparing phenomena across cultures, was questioned (Ferraro, 1990).
