As software systems evolve, developers struggle to track and understand the vast amount of software information related to the software source code itself, the application domain, its quality concerns, changes to the underlying infrastructure, and the software ecosystem at large. Mainstream integrated development environments (IDEs) offer only limited support to advise the developer during common development tasks, mainly in the form of so-called “quick fixes” related to purely technical aspects of the programming language. This continuation of our ongoing SNSF project1 will explore these issues in the following four thematically related PhD tracks:

Due to a reduction of the requested budget, the track on API client migration was dropped.
