Students will acquire key competences needed to analyze complex software systems and improve their maintenance and evolution. The course is focused on the study of techniques related to the mining and analysis of structured and unstructured data in software repositories, defect prediction and analysis, software visualization, and empirical software engineering. Students will apply the acquired expertise in the context of a software analytics project. A solid basis in object-oriented programming and software engineering is required.
