Web 2.0 for Software Engineering

The list of workshops for ICSE 2010 is out, and though many of them look very interesting I’d like to point your attention towards the workshop on Web 2.0 for Software Engineering. Here’s the abstract:

Social software is built around an “architecture of participation” where user data is aggregated as a side-effect of using Web 2.0 applications. Web 2.0 implies that processes and tools are socially open, and that content can be used in several different contexts. Web 2.0 tools and technologies support interactive information sharing, data interoperability and user centered design. For instance, wikis, blogs, tags and feeds help us organize, manage and categorize content in an informal and collaborative way. One goal of this workshop is to investigate how these technologies can improve software development practices. Some of these technologies have made their way into collaborative software development processes such as Agile and Scrum, and in development platforms such as Rational Team Concert which draw their inspiration from Web 2.0. These processes and environments are just scratching the surface of what can be done by incorporating Web 2.0 approaches and technologies into collaborative software development. This workshop aims to improve our understanding of how Web 2.0, manifested in technologies such as mashups or dashboards, can change the culture of collaborative software development.

I’m in the Program Committee and I’d love to read your work on the topic, so start writing!
