Workshop 2: Wiki-Based Software Documentation
Tuesday, 13:30, half day
Ademar Aguiar, University of Porto (FEUP)
Gabriel David, University of Porto (FEUP)
Wiki's proved to be very appealing collaboration tools to present and edit web-based information, through a very simple markup language, a powerful dynamic-linking mechanism, and support to the notion of adaptive web pages. This workshop focuses on the usage of Wiki engines in the specific domain of software documentation. It aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in researching and exploring Wiki's as cost-effective tools to support cooperative and agile software documentation, with the goal of identifying key opportunities, challenges and obstacles to Wiki-based software documentation, and to build collaborations for future research.
Ademar Aguiar, University of Porto (FEUP): Mr. Aguiar teaches at Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP) and does Research & Development at INESC Porto. He has specialized in the area of software engineering, mainly framework technology, design patterns, agile processes, and software documentation, topics about which he has authored several research papers and presented many different courses to academic and industrial audiences. His PhD thesis, titled "A Minimalist Approach to Framework Documentation", proposes a pragmatic approach to document frameworks, which comprises a documentation model, an agile documentation process, and a set of collaborative documentation tools and utilities based on the Wiki concept and XML technologies. Currently, his main line of research is on Wiki-based tools to support the low-cost production of high-quality documentation for OO frameworks.
