Quantum Software Engineering: The Dawn of a New Research Area

Abstract. Quantum computing is a new technology that recently raises a lot of interest in industry. We will sketch the essentials of this technology and its properties that make it so interesting for applications. But quantum computing is radically different from classical computing such that new approaches for building software that encompass quantum computing is needed. We will sketch such differences and suggest a first attempt of a lifecycle of quantum software. Also, some building blocks of a corresponding development environment and execution infrastructure will be discussed. Selective areas that demand significant research will be pointed to.Read more

20 years in software: the bad, the ugly and the unspeakable

Abstract. In the industry, it's always an interesting experience to notice the drop in productivity of developers working on the same application across years. Depending on which stage a feature is implemented, it can take double (or triple?) the time. As software rots, there comes a time when it's less expensive to rewrite the application from scratch. Organizations don't want to face this issue: maintenance of existing software is a hot topic among developers of all tech stacks.Read more
