Mining Developer Behavior Across GitHub and StackOverflow

Yunxiang Xiong, Zhangyuan Meng, Beijun Shen, Wei Yin
2017 Proceedings of the 29th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
Nowadays, software developers are increasingly involved in GitHub and StackOverflow, creating a lot of valuable data in the two communities.  ...  This approach links the accounts from two communities using a CART decision tree, leveraging the features from usernames, user behaviors and writing styles.  ...  For example, labels of repositories in GitHub are programming languages, but those of Q&As in StackOverflow are technical terms. 3) Association mining.  ...

Diversity of Skills and Collective Intelligence in GitHub [article]

Dorota Celińska-Kopczyńska
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we investigate the patterns behind the connections among GitHub users in Open Source communities.  ...  We find that diversity of skills plays an essential role in the creation of links among users who exchange information (e.g., in issues, comments, and following networks).  ...  Roles of the links To answer RQ2, we conducted a text mining analysis.  ...

A Survey of Mining Software Repositories in Social Network

Yuexiao Teng
2020 Journal of Software  
GitHub. In order to fill this existing gap, in the paper, an original literature survey has been conducted on 5 different kinds of social networks regarding mining software repositories since 2000.  ...  However, there are few comprehensive surveys on the intersection of mining software repositories and mining social networks due to the little emphasis on this intersection and the recent rapid popularity  ...  The research results could be helpful in understanding the role of blogs in software development process.  ...
