Researcher at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano , Italy
Topic: Techniques to Evolve the Software Architecture in an Agile Project
Eduardo Guerra is a Researcher at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. He worked for seven years at the Spacial Institute for Space Research (INPE) in Brazil, reaching the senior researcher level. Before that, he also acted as a teacher at the Instituto Tecnologico de Aeronáutica (ITA), which is known as one of the best engineering schools in the country. The focus of Eduardo Guerra’s research can be defined as “find better ways to develop software”, which includes patterns, programming approaches, and processes to be used by the development team. He considers the principles of Agile Software Development the core guidance of his research since they share the goal of improving software quality, optimizing development time, and increasing software adaptability. Test-driven development (TDD) was the core of several works that focused on test code refactoring, application of TDD for specific kinds of software, and teaching and evaluating the technique. Also, in the scope of programming techniques, metadata and code annotations were the focus of several works that aimed to study them as an alternative to make the software more adaptable and improve the code quality.
