November 19th 5:00 for 5:15 - 6:30 pm 2008 — Massey University Research Projects

This talk is an overview of some of the research projects in the Software Engineering program at Massey University. The focus is on the projects that have resulted in (open-source) tools that are useful for real-world software engineers. Most of these tools are published as Eclipse plugins and can be installed through the Eclipse update mechanism.
