Our paper on analysis bots has been accepted to the ICSE NIER track. The paper is written from the perspective of software engineering researchers and for a software engineering audience. It argues that we must implement a platform where analysis bots compete to provide the most meaningful analysis results to practitioners.
Polite programmers can use spaces if they like.
The paper presents briefly some of the design decisions that went into Polite, our evolutionary mutation of Smalltalk that brings the language closer to natural language.
My favorite reviewer for this paper says:
“An unconventional idea for an ecosystem, which shows well that there are many more opportunities to benefit from the ecosystem idea, than the various industrial applications. The concrete examples of the platform and the applications make the ideas tangible and well understandable. I particularly like the discussions of the lessons learned”
