  • Paulo Meirelles, Carlos Santos Jr., João Miranda, Fabio Kon, Antonio Terceiro, Christina Chavez. A Study of the Relationships between Source Code Metrics and Attractiveness in Free Software Projects. 2010 Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering, Salvador, Bahia, 2010, pp. 11-20.

    A significant number of Free Software projects has been widely used and considered successful. However, there is an even larger number of them that cannot overcome the initial steps towards building an active community of users and developers. In this study, we investigated whether there are relationships between source code metrics and attractiveness, i.e., the ability of a project to attract users and developers. To verify these relationships, we analyzed 6,773 Free Software projects from the SourceForge.net repository.

  • Alexandre Porres. Pure Data.

    Originally dedicated to audio, Pd (aka Pure Data) is a real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing. Widely adopted in interactive multimedia applications, Pd is used in computer music mainly as a synthesis and realtime DSP environment, as well as a performance and interactive composition environment. This is a tutorial (in Portuguese, by Alexandre Porres) that covers the basic syntax of Puredata and does not require any background in programming.

  • Introduction to Computer Science with Java and OO.

    The book evolved from the experience of the authors gained from teaching the Introduction to Computer Science course, offered at the Math and Statistics Institute of the University of São Paulo (home of the Computer Science Department). Its main characteristics are the informal style and the use of object-oriented concepts right from the first class on. The course is based on DrJava, a free software environment for teaching programming.
