PPIG 2016 - 27th Annual Workshop
A fox not a hedgehog: What does PPIG know?
Luke Church, Mariana Mărășoiu
Abstract: We outline a thematic history of the Psychology of Programming Interest Group based on a coding of [~400] publications. We highlight the changing interests of the community, draw out trends and discuss missing topics. We compare and contrast with [~50] publications from the PLATEAU community. We find that, foxlike, PPIG has a very broad coverage of a wide range of topics. We characterise trends in these and go on to discuss missing topics and areas for future work.
