Bibliography on Actual Process research

This page contains (partly) commented references which to some extend deals with actual processes (mostly without noticing). The work can be devided in various related work portions:
  • Microprocess and macroprocess research
  • Personal Software Process (PSP)
  • Psychology of programming
  • Software archeology and mining software repositories
  • Software metrics
  • Usability research and assessment
  • Work studies of programmers: BurLeo03
