The workshop is concerned with all aspects of the search experience of software developers.

Search-driven development involves a broad range of activities and topics: from finding reusable software assets to finding experts within an organization; from using the mighty grep to using internet-scale search engines dedicated to software artifacts; from finding matching code fragments based on a simple text query to based on a given unit-test. At the first edition of this workshop we identified suitability and trustability of search results as key factors in software search. For example, that software search results must not only be relevant to the search query but also suite into the current source code under development; and that source code alone is often not sufficient to assess the trustability of a search result. Similar factors apply when searching for external artifacts, whole projects or developers expertise.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

We are looking forward to exciting and stimulating discussions about all these ideas – and much more – at the workshop!
