Congratulations to my colleague, friend and running partner, Dr Claudia Szabo on winning the SIGCSE Best Paper Award for a paper entitled “Student Projects are Not Throwaways: Teaching Practical Software Maintenance in a Software Engineer Course”. Claudia has three papers here because overachievement, but more seriously this is a fantastic achievement, especially for her first SIGCSE. This is also really useful research that has direct practical applications for people who are teaching Software Engineering AND we’re working together to build courses based on some of her earlier work on Neo-Piagetian analysis of existing courses.
Here’s a picture! Yay, Claudia!
[…] The Australasian Software Engineering Conference has been around for 23 years and, while there have been previous efforts to add more focus on education, this year we’re very pleased to have a full day on Education on Wednesday, the 9th of April. (Full disclosure: I’m the Chair of the program committee for the Education track. This is self-advertising of a sort.) The speakers include a number of exciting software engineering education researchers and practitioners, including Dr Claudia Szabo, who recently won the SIGCSE Best Paper Award for a paper in software engineering and student projects.
