    Title –  XPlus: Integrating Interface Design based on User-Experience within eXtreme Programming Practices

    Authors – Carina Piauhy and Christina Chavez

    Abstract – The eXtreme Programming agile development methodology attempts to produce systems with high production quality that meet the actual clients’ needs in a short time frame. However, it does not give much emphasis in the development of the aplications’ user interfaces, which is one of the fundamental factors to user satisfaction. This paper addresses the conciliation of practices from the XP with practices from interface design centered on user experience, aiming for a higher quality in the final software product. A quasi-systematic review was conducted to identify and characterize methodologies in related work. After the identification of existing methodologies, the present work describes a proposal for the adaptation of XP, in such way to include user experience practices. This proposal has been named XPlus. Finally, a case study was conducted to evaluate the usability of applications built using XPlus.

  • INES Researchers Present Software Visualization Paper at WMSWM

    Publicado em May 28th, 2010Publications

    The paper “On the Design of a Multi-Perspective Visualization Environment to Enhance Software Comprehension Activities”, authored by INES Researchers Glauco Carneiro, Claudio Sant’Anna and Manoel Mendonça will be presented at the 7th Workshop on Modern Software Maintenance, satellite event of the Brazilian Symposium on Software Quality, SBQS 2010.

    This paper describes the steps followed to design an extensible multi-perspective Eclipse plug-in for static software visualization. The work offers an initial set of three perspectives and their respective views that are intended to provide a broad set of software visualization resources to the IDE user. It will be presented, during WMSWM Technical Sessions on June 11th, in the city of Belém, Brazil. Visit for more information.
