Reading Group: Experimentation in Software Engineering

The idea is to read relevant fragments of two main books that give basics of statistics and experiment set up for software engineering. The focus is on quantitative methods, not qualitative methods. There will be some bias towards mechanical experiments.

The intended learning outcome: to know how to design, execute and describe in a convincing way an experiment that supports your research finding.

We do not have a meeting schedule, but we do have a founding meeting: 9:00-10:30 Monday, April 27th, room 3A01 NEW!!!. Drop an email to Helge or Andrzej if you want to join us.

At this point we do not plan to give official ECTS credit for this activity, but let me know if this is an issue for you.
