SEMAT – Moving Forward

May 3, 2013 in News

The first step of SEMAT was to develop a foundation for software engineering consisting of a kernel and a language to define methods, practices and kernel elements.  Such a foundation, called Essence, has been developed. The first part of the three-year vision has been fulfilled. Now it is time to start working on the next steps of SEMAT. Particularly, we need to work on three areas:

1.     Practice area:  for example, working on a practice library on top of the kernel, requirements of SEMAT, the development of tools, the development of courses in software engineering, etc.

2.     Theory area: for example, the development of a general theory of software engineering, and research in software engineering.

3.     Community area: for example, making SEMAT a legal entity, seeking funding, and growing the community.
