Hi scholar.social, Hi fediverse!
Mark here from Delft, Netherlands. I just started a PhD to research socio-technical enablers/inhibitors of software testing. In the next 4 years I will look into how and why developers do (not) test software. I am particularly interested in the social dimensions of this which is why I'm also curious to learn more about ethnographic research methods.

Looking forward to be a part of the scholar.social community to connect and share insights!

looking for free(libre) CAQDAS tool 

I am currently preparing to code a lot of data for a qualitative analysis of stack-overflow posts. I am looking for a tool that can help me with memoing and keeping track of my codes. Can someone recommend a free(libre) tool? I looked into a bunch of tools already but I am a bit lost.

It does not need to be perfect and I am willing to contribute to make it work but it should support an open standard like [REFI-QDA](qdasoftware.org/).

I looked into online survey systems last week and built a tiny python based online survey tool to scratch an itch I already had for a long time. I documented my motivation, ideas and the most essential steps in a

quote, science 

It is not whether phenomena are empirically common that is critical in science - else why should Becquerel have been so interested in the peculiar behavior of uranium? - but whether they can be made to reveal the enduring natural process that underlie them. Seeing heaven in a grain of sand is not a trick only poets can accomplish.

From Clifford Geertz's The Interpretation of Cultures

I just deployed my new website/blog and added a hello world post in which I introduce two great papers from Beller et al. (2019) and Aniche et al. (2021) about developer behavior with a focus on testing.

Feedback and discussions are welcome! 🙂
