We are software engineering researchers from Saarland University, Germany and would like to conduct a study investigating how software developers debug their code so as to improve the state of automated debugging in practice. We would like to understand how much time is spent debugging, which tools and techniques are used, and how we can help to automate the task of bug reproduction, bug diagnosis, and bug fixing.
We invite you to participate in this study. The study will revolve around debugging real software errors. We shall share a docker image, along with all the necessary materials to conduct the debugging task. Such materials will also include a short tutorial, providing you some background and details about the job.
Your work time compensation will be 540 USD (given that the job is done). An estimated effort for the job is 18-20 hours in total. To participate in the study, you should have substantial experience with programming in C, with the GNU GDB debugger, and with make.
If you are interested in this job, please take 5-10 minutes to fill out the following questionnaire: http://bit.do/dbg Please respond to this questionnaire by 19th June 2016 if you are interested in this job.
