Question about Object Structure
Marwan Abi-Antoun*, Nariman Ammar*, Thomas LaToza
We conducted a small pilot study of developers working on coding tasks designed to require thinking about relationships between objects. Developers did indeed ask a number of questions about various types of relationships such as containment, ownership, object identities and aliasing. Finally, some of our results revealed usability challenges tools should address to more effectively answer these questions.
