On July 20, 2016 Rlaf Klamma and Milos Kravcik provided a workshop with the title DevOpsUse for large-scale social software engineering at the JMSE Summer School at the University of Koblenz-Landau in Germany. In Large Scale Social Software Engineering, communities should be enabled to express their requirements, model their services, design their tool interfaces and trace their realization. Social software concepts (e.g. commenting, voting, communication, sharing artifacts) widely known from social networking platforms can be used for community-centered collaboration in a portal for end-user communities. This social software portal is integrated with a DevOps environment supporting a well-defined software development process. The Requirements Bazaar was presented at the workshop, which is a Web platform integrated into a state-of-the-Art Open Source DevOps environment. This conceptual and technical extension is called DevOpsUse, where Use stands for end-user integration. Requirements Bazaar is used for the elicitation of relevant requirements in the WEKIT project, which was demonstrated during the workshop.
The JMSE summer school was a two-week eventorganized by the JMSE project for their master students. It is an EU funded project under TEMPUS initiative, which aims to develop and implement a Master of Software Engineering curriculum. Six universities from two partner countries participate in this project. The three Palestinian universities of Birzeit University, Islamic University of Gaza, and Al-Quds University, and the three Egyptian universities of Cairo University, Helwan University, and Egyptian e-Learning University. In addition to these six universities, there are four EU universities involved in this project, the University of Koblenz-Landau (Germany), the Free University of Bolzano (Italy), the University of Middlesex (UK) and the Harokopio University of Athens (Greece).
