Everything we do carries risk. If we did not take risks, then we would not get out of bed in the morning. But how do we make risk based decisions? What is a risk worth taking? Does risk management impede or enable things to happen? Does Agile's approach to project management and software development in fact endanger the safety of an organization’s projects? How can the management of safety risk be 'agile' – would this not be conflicting? These are a few questions will be considered in the course of this presentation, along with some introductory teaching to the assessment of risk and its application to highly integrated or complex systems and software.

Automated Refactoring - Metrics are Not Enough

Christopher SimonsAutomated techniques such as Evolutionary Computing have been applied extensively to refactor software source code, often based on metrics that describe the object-oriented structure of an application. Recent work shows that in some cases applying popular automated tools to open-source software does not necessarily lead to an improved version of the software as assessed by some subjective criteria. Through a survey of professionals, we investigate the relationship between popular refactoring metrics and the subjective opinions of software engineers. We find little or no correlation between the two. Through qualitative analysis, we find that a simple static view of software is insufficient to assess software quality, and that software quality is dependent on factors that are not amenable to measurement via metrics. We recommend that future automated refactoring research should incorporate information about the dynamic behaviour of software, and conclude that a human-in-the-loop approach may be the only way to refactor software in a manner helpful to a software engineer.
