Analyzing students' software redesign strategies

Sylvia Stuurman, Harrie Passier, Erik Barendsen
2016 Proceedings of the 16th Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research - Koli Calling '16  
The design of software is known to be difficult for novice computer scientists. In this paper, we focus on software redesign and on the refactoring necessary to implement a redesign.  ...  Redesigning an application aims to improve nonfunctional aspects such as extensibility, without changing the functionality.  ...  Then you can check how the program functions, and how you can redesign it from scratch." They decide to try to fit in patterns.  ...

ReDesign: Redesigning learning through a new Learning Management System

Maria Iosifina Avgousti, Stella K. Hadjistassou
2019 The EUROCALL Review  
Although several types of software that host educational or training content for students have been used in previous studies, the aim of this EU-funded project was to design a digitally-enabled platform  ...  The platform is based on, but extends beyond, principles of standard Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and Facebook, by affording Web 2.0 tools, Augmented Reality (AR) applications, and QR codes.  ...  language teaching objectives rather than accommodating course content to the existing CMS functions" (p.345).  ...

Redesigning the Agents' Decision Machinery [chapter]

Luis Antunes, Helder Coelho
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In a multi-agent system, agents must decide what to do and by what order.  ...  Autonomy has a role in deciding which are the new goals of the agent, and it has another in choosing which of the agent's goals are going to be addressed next.  ...  We wish to express our thanks to João Balsa, José Castro Caldas, João Faria, José Cascalho, Cristiano Castelfranchi, Rosaria Conte, Maria Miceli, Luis Moniz, Leonel Nóbrega, Pedro Rodrigues, Jorge Louçã  ...

Redesigning with traits

Damien Cassou, Stéphane Ducasse, Roel Wuyts
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 international conference on Dynamic languages in conjunction with the 15th International Smalltalk Joint Conference 2007 - ICDL '07  
We wanted to evaluate how traits enable reuse, and what problems could be encountered when building a library using traits from scratch, taking into account that traits are units of reuse.  ...  To evaluate the expressiveness of traits, some hierarchies were refactored, showing code reuse.  ...  Acknowledgment We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Agence Nationale pour la Recherche (ANR) for the project "Cook: Rearchitecting object-oriented applications" (2005)(2006)(2007)(2008  ...

Deciding what to design

Mary Shaw, Jim Herbsleb, Ipek Ozkaya
2005 Proceedings of the 27th international conference on Software engineering - ICSE '05  
The diversity of applications requires adaptability in responding to client needs, and the diversity of clients and contexts requires the ability to discriminate among criteria for success.  ...  These applications are constrained not only by traditional capability and performance considerations but also by economic, business, market and policy issues and the context of intended use.  ...  Thanks especially to In-Young Ko, and Ho-Jin Choi for working with us on course development, and to all the students of the first four offerings of the course who helped us work out the ideas and the wrinkles  ...

Redesigning Bitcoin's fee market [article]

Ron Lavi, Or Sattath, Aviv Zohar
2022 arXiv   pre-print
To decouple them, we analyze the "monopolistic auction", showing: (i) its revenue does not decrease as the maximal block size increases, (ii) it is resilient to an untrusted auctioneer (the miner), and  ...  These issues are strongly related as increasing the maximal block size may decrease revenue due to Bitcoin's pay-your-bid approach.  ...  It is not clear how to do this optimally, and in any case, it requires some non-trivial computational effort (data gathering, statistical analysis, etc).  ...
