CodeLounge: a roller-coaster ride

Speaker: Marco D'Ambros

CodeLounge is neither a company nor a research group: so, what is it and what does it do? How did it evolve from its foundation in 2018 to the present day? Which lessons were learned along the way and what is the outlook for the coming years? In this talk, we will answer to these questions and present the ‘CodeLounge journey’.

Marco D’Ambros is the director of CodeLounge, the center for software research and development of the Software Institute, that combines expertise from academia and from industry. After obtaining a PhD in the area of mining software repositories in 2010, Marco worked at Palantir Technologies until 2018, a leading Silicon Valley data mining firm, helping government organizations and large enterprises making sense of their large and dispersed data, and leading the technical execution of projects around the globe. In 2020, he was awarded the MSR 2010 MIP award for his work on bug prediction.

Chair: Tahereh Zohdinasab

ℹ️  The seminar will be in presence for everyone in room D0.03. If you are unable to attend in presence, the SI website contains a link to a Teams video call in the “location" field (i.e., click on “D0.03"). 


In February 2019, the Software Institute started its SI Seminar Series. Every Thursday afternoon, a researcher of the Institute will publicly give a short talk on a software engineering argument of their choice. Examples include, but are not limited to novel interesting papers, seminal papers, personal research overview, discussion of preliminary research ideas, tutorials, and small experiments.
