Akhila Sri Manasa Venigalla, Kowndinya Boyalakunta, Sridhar Chimalakonda
2021 arXiv   pre-print
GitQ is evaluated with 15 developers based on the UTAUT model to understand developer perception towards its usefulness.  ...  However, developers willing to contribute to projects on GitHub often find it challenging to select appropriate projects to contribute or reuse due to the large number of repositories present on GitHub  ...  Out of the participants, the undergraduate students and five of the professional developers were novice contributors of GitHub (contributed to less than two public GitHub projects).  ...
