Context Grey Literature (GL) recently has grown in Software Engineering (SE) research since the increased use of online communication channels by software engineers. However, there is still a limited understanding of how SE research is taking advantage of GL. Objective This research aimed to understand how SE researchers use GL in their secondary...

Background: The use of Grey Literature (GL) has been investigate in diverse research areas. In Software Engineering (SE), this topic has an increasing interest over the last years. Problem: Even with the increase of GL published in diverse sources, the understanding of their use on the SE research community is still controversial. Objective: To und...

Context: Multivocal Literature Review(MLR) searches for evidence in both Traditional Literature (TL) and Grey Literature (GL). Despite the growing interest in MLR-based studies, the literature assessing how GL has contributed to MLR studies is still scarce. Objective: This research aims to assess how the use of GL contributed to MLR studies. By con...

Context: In the last years, diverse research areas increased their interest in Grey Literature (GL). In Software Engineering (SE), SE practitioners became heavy consumers of GL, by way of contrast to traditional research papers. Problem: This is unfortunate, in particular, although the increase of Systematic Literature Reviews (SLR) published, rese...
Conference Paper
Context: In the last years, the Grey Literature (GL) had a notable increase in interest in diverse areas of knowledge. In Software Engineering (SE), with the advance of social media, the SE practitioners are heavy consumers of GL, opposite to traditional research papers, such as the Systematic Literature Review (SLR). Problem: Despite the increase...

Context: For more than 15 years, Agile Software Development (ASD) has been used to improve software development, process, and quality. However, there are scenarios where the effectiveness of these methods and practices has not been rigorously evaluated. Objective: Understand the benefits and limitations related to these methods and practices in a p...

Questions and Answers (Q&A) websites maintain a long history of needs, problems, and challenges that software developers face. In contrast to Q&A websites, which are strongly tied to practitioners' needs, there are systematic reviews (SRs), which, according to recent studies, lack a connection with software engineering practice. In this paper, we i...

During a long time, software engineering research has been trying to better understand open-source communities and uncover two fundamental questions: (i) who are the contributors and (i) why they contribute. Most of these researches focus on well-known OSS projects, but little is known about the OSS movement in emerging countries. In this paper, we...

Programmers often use forums, such as StackOverflow, to easily and quickly solve their issues. Researchers then investigate those questions to better understand the state-of-use of software engineering techniques. Also, due to the quality and the great number questions and answers, the results found using such method might be difficult, or even imp...

Nos últimos anos, o desenvolvimento de software tem exigido a me- lhoria de técnicas e ferramentas que facilitem a comunicação de equipes distri- buídas. Nesse contexto, ambientes de social coding vêm ganhando atenção de pesquisadores e principalmente das comunidades open source, devido ao fato do seu processo de desenvolvimento ser necessariamente...

Agile Methodologies have emerged during recent years in the software development, but there are still few empirical studies evaluate the effectiveness of these methods. This research aims to identify and present the business values associated with the use of Agile methodologies presented in literature, and also in companies of software development...
