I am Palak Halvadia and I am a Computer Science graduate student at the University of Lethbridge in Canada. I am here to invite you to participate in a research study about `Assessing current attitudes and needs of code reviewer recommendation systems’. I am looking for experienced software developers with a minimum experience of 2 years or more of software development experience and prior experience with code review recommendation systems (i.e. experience in using number of different systems.). We expect that the participants should be 20 years of age or older to participate in the survey.
The research survey will be open for two weeks from 28th November 2020 to 12th December 2020. Those interested will first sign a consent form (https://uleth.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6FLn9U2j6nTIla5) and then will be redirected to complete a short (5-10 minute) screening survey which aims at filtering out the participants based on the minimum requirements required to participate in the survey for code reviewer recommendation systems/tools. Then selected study participants will be provided with a link to a questionnaire regarding their experience with the code reviewer recommendation systems/tools. At the end of the questionnaire, participants can choose to be entered into a draw for a $50 CDN Amazon gift card. The draw will happen at the end of the study period. The Amazon gift card will be sent to the selected participant(s) through email.
In order to participate in this research study, you will require a desktop or laptop and access to the internet. You can withdraw from the study at any time you want by simply closing your browser. If you are interested in participating in the study, please complete the screening survey. The data collected for the study will be deleted/destroyed 2 years after the completion of the research study. The data and addresses collected for the purpose of sending the results back would be kept for 2 years after the completion of the study.
Thank you for your time. If you have any further questions, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
