Visual Studio Research Tools

After one year and a half since the SEIF 2011 Award, SocialTFS (here renamed as “Social for TFS”) is now listed among the Visual Studio Research Tools:

Social for Team Foundation Server (Social for TFS) is a community add-on for Visual Studio to aggregate teammates’ content from various social sites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, into the developer’s workspace. Social for TFS is developed in C# and available under MPL license.


SEIF 2012 Day

The 2012 Software Engineering Innovation Foundation (SEIF 2012) workshop

brings together SEIF winners, influential software engineering researchers, and researchers from Microsoft Research to present and discuss existing software engineering projects being pursued by the SEIF community, and future directions of software engineering research.

Keynote by Brad Myers, from Carnegie Mellon University, one of the leaders of the HCI community.
Then talks by SEIF 2011 awardees, including me 🙂

IWOSN 2012

Si è appena concluso a Patrasso l’Intersocial Workshop on Online Social Networks: Challenges and Perspectives (IWOSN 2012), organizzato nell’ambito del progetto Intersocial.
Fabio ha presentato la proposta di “Social Aggregator for SMEs” e Nicole è stata Session Chair di “Strategies and case studies for SMEs”.
Grazie ai nostri colleghi di Patrasso e Ioannina per il lavoro organizzativo. Il workshop è stato un successo sia come partecipazione che interesse suscitato. Un in bocca al lupo per il weekend critico che li aspetta. Si meritano il meglio

CHASE 2012

Siamo reduci dal Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE 2012), evento satellite di ICSE a Zurigo.
Il workshop è stato molto proficuo. Abbiamo parlato di SocialTFS e raccolto molti apprezzamenti oltre che una buona occasione di iniziare una sperimentazione a Porto Alegre con project work universitari promossi da Microsoft. Non è ancora il case study industriale ma è comunque un passo avanti.

Filippo goes to Redmond

16 Feb 2012. I gave a talk about SocialTFS at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA.

MS Research Building 99, Redmond WA

It was an intense but rewarding day. Below some feedback.

I’m an SDET on the TFS team and I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your talk today. I think this is a very interesting concept and I do believe that building these types of interpersonal bonds between team members improves collaboration and working conditions.

Thank you very much for sharing your work with us. We shall be in touch for more details if needed.

It was wonderful to see what you’ve build into Visual Studio and TFS. … By the way, your talk is now online:
