Social Software Engineering (SSE) is a branch of software engineering that is concerned with the social aspects of software development. Whereas it is difficult to give an exact definition for the field, the participants of the First International Workshop on Social Software Engineering and Applications (SoSEA 2008) proposed the following characterization:
One of the main observations in the field of SSE is that the concepts, principles, and technologies made for social software applications are applicable to software development itself as software engineering is inherently a social activity.
Noi c’eravamo al workshop (vero Fabio?) L’ultima frase è essenzialmente la posizione espressa con il nostro paper.
