Keynote "Visualizing Software Dynamics"
Fabian Beck gives a keynote at the Symposium on Software Performance in Karlsruhe
Abstract: Software is not just a static set of code fragments, it is dynamic - programs show dynamic behavior when being executed and software systems evolve over time. This talk introduces how visualization helps better understand and analyze these two dimensions of software dynamics. I present both architecture-centric overview visualizations and detailed code-centric visual representations to support various software maintenance and performance engineering tasks. Finally, I discuss challenges for leveraging the two dynamic dimensions within integrated visualizations.
