I am in the process of building tools with my students to ease the lives of software engineers. Keep an eye on this page for cool tools.
Emotimonitor – a Trello power-up to capture emotions of agile teams 2020 (Stage 1 – Development)
I supervised (with Prof. John Grundy and A/Prof. Rashina Hoda as co-supervisors) a group of final year Software Engineering undergraduate students at Monash University, Australia, to build this tool. This was their research project of the degree. Apart from supervising them, my contribution spans from conceptualisation to the delivery of the software, including revising and submitting the publication to the Journal of Systems and Software. The students scored the highest marks in the class (Students from both Australian and Malaysian campuses were in the class). This was a proud moment for me since they were the very first group of students I supervised in my life (Of course, I have handled software teams in the industry; but none in the academia before).
Emotimonitor – 2021 (Stage 2 – Evaluation and Further Development)
In 2021, another set of final year Software Engineering undergraduate students at Monash University, Australia joined the project. Stage 2 consists of evaluating the current tool with the participation of software practitioners in the industry and doing improvements based on the feedback.
