A case of computational thinking: The subtle effect of hidden dependencies on the user experience of version control

Luke Church; Emma Soderberg; Elayabharath Elango

We present some work in progress based on observations of the use of version control systems in two different software development organizations. We consider the emergent user experience, and analyze the structure of the conceptual model and its presentation to see how this experience is formed. We consider its impact on the adoption of such tools outside software engineering and suggest future lines of research.
