Analysis of how the brain of software developers operate

  • Private Profile

Goal: Software developers have worked in multiple environments over the years and these environments have different effects on their brains. As an outcome, the perspective of developers assumes a focal job in the quality and the productivity of the produced software. Researchers have various methodologies available for the study of the effect of environment external conditions in brain-behavior relations. The electroencephalogram (EEG) is considered by numerous individuals to be a standout amongst the most proficient and moderately inexpensive methodologies for analyzing these effects. We prefer the EEG since it additionally permits an examination of formative changes without emotional impedance on typical progressing behaviors.

Developers are indeed the most important resource in software production, and the individual developers are hard to substitute. The core of the work of the developers of knowledge intensive systems is in their mind, and this now a growing interest in understanding how to detect and model the state of their mind. Such analysis would enable to determine and model the optimal situation to develop in terms, for instance, of speed of development, minimization of errors, etc., and, to the extent possible, to recreate or to get close to such situation while organizing the work, the processes, the tools, and so on. The problem of performing such analysis is that the most refined equipment to model the work of the mind, like the fMRI, is very expensive and not movable. However, a tool, MNE, has been developed who is able to recreate accurate approximations using EEG of the data coming from an accurate wearable device that would come from the fMRI. This is a major enabler of the research in this area and in this paper details on why to select it and how to use it are provided. Current paper makes proof-of-concept to show that EEG is applicable for for retrieving information about functional state of the brain especially with a help of MNE tool.
