REmail - Blending Talk and Work in Eclipse

Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) are isolated from those communication means that programmers use daily to interact with each other---as if talk and work were unrelated in software development. We present REmail, an Eclipse plugin, that aims at filling this gap. REmail integrates email communication in the IDE, allowing developers to quickly and easily retrieve emails related to the class at hand, perform customized searches, or watch trends in discussions about code. REmail also allows developers to produce information, e.g., by rating the value of any message or by sending contextual emails. We will also explore scenarios in which email information can improve program comprehension tasks.

Introducing Google Dart

Modern web applications can be complex and must support multiple devices. Structuring large applications is hard: Google is proposing the Dart language to address such complexity. Come to this talk to take a tour of the language and to discuss its future in web development.


Alberto Bacchelli

Alberto Bacchelli

Alberto is a Ph.D. student at USI (Universit? della Svizzera Italiana) in the Faculty of Informatics. He is working under the supervision of Prof. Michele Lanza, in the REVEAL research group. Alberto explores how unstructured data produced during software development (e.g., emails) can be leveraged to support software engineering. Before starting this experience, Alberto obtained a bachelor and master degree in computer science from University of Bologna, then he worked in the industry for one year at Cineca, the largest Italian computing centre.

Andrea Chiodoni

Andrea Chiodoni, La Posta

Andrea has always been fascinated by system and software architectures in both engineering, constructing, and managing. His primary goal is to deeply know technologies in order to be able to apply the right one at the right moment while always trying to apply the following base principles: correctness and "keep things easy". Andrea's interests include Systems and Software architectures, Java development, Open source, Security. Andrea is Software Architect at La Posta.

Sylvain Jermini

Sylvain Jermini, La Posta

Sylvain has been writing programs and hacking for fun since 2000 and for profit since 2007 after he graduated from SUPSI (Manno). His main interests are in learning new and old programming languages, web technologies and "computer science" stuff in general. Currently working at La Posta as a java developer.
