Cognitive Load Drivers in Large Scale Software Development

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

Software engineers handle a lot of information intheir daily work. We explore how software engineers interact withinformation management systems/tools, and to what extent thesesystems expose users to increased cognitive load. We reviewed theliterature of cognitive aspects, relevant for software engineering,and performed an exploratory case study on how software engi-neers perceive information systems. Data was collected throughfive semistructured interviews. We present empirical evidence ofthe presence of cognitive load drivers, as a consequence of tooluse in large scale software engineering.
