Fourth International Workshop on Languages for Modelling Variability (SPLTea 2019)
Sprache des Titels:
Education has a key role to play for disseminating the constantly growing body of Software Product Line (SPL) knowledge. In a sense, every researcher in SPL should think about how to teach SPL. This workshop aims to explore and explain the current status and ongoing work on teaching SPLs at universities, colleges, and in industry (e.g., by consultants). This fourth edition will continue the effort made at SPLTea'14, SPLTea'15 and SPLTea'18. In particular we seek to better understand how to build a curriculum for teaching SPLs - a central issue as reported in surveys and as informally discussed at SPLTea'18. We expect several lightning talks that report on traditional questions like: what is the targeted audience? What is the place in the curriculum? What is the material (slides, tools, books, etc) used? As there is hardly a one-size-fits-all curriculum, the workshop aims to collectively identify commonality and variability when building SPL curriculums. As a concrete outcome, we expect to elaborate a variability model of SPL teaching that could be actuated to derive custom curriculum in various contexts.
