Towards a Software Developer Context Model



The context of a developer can be viewed as a rich and complex network of elements across different dimensions that are not limited to the work developed on an IDE.We propose the definition of a software developer context model that takes into account all the dimensions that characterize the work environment of the developer. We are especially focused on the project dimension and present a definition of what the context model encompasses at this level. The experimental work done on the context capture perspective show that useful contextual information can be extracted from project management tools. The extraction, analysis and availability of these contextual information can be used to enrich the work environment of the developer with additional knowledge that relate with the tasks being developed.
