Teamwork in software repositories as a complex system. First of a series of papers on that topic, researching the nature of techno-social systems.
I would like to spot your attention to three points:
- Development teams eventually become complex systems, mainly in collaborative work environments.
- Relations and collaborations take place through the environment.
- Pattern mining and analysing social-based information is a complex problem.
Thus, our main objective was studying new methodologies to analyse patterns of collaboration in collaborative work environments, as it is a complex problem that needs new tools to explore and analyse data related to relations-based information.
Also, we wanted to explore and analyse relations-based data, e.g. to answer the question “Do developers self-organize?”, and finally, to contribute to open science tools and methodologies.
In Statistical Physics, criticality is defined as a type of behaviour observed when a system undergoes a phase transition. A state on the edge between two different types of behaviour is called the critical state, and in this state the system is at criticality.
A clear example is…
