Code fixing code

By: Peter Ardell   Martin Monperrus, professor of software technology at KTH: you and your colleagues have an expert in programming called Luc Esape in your department, who fixes software bugs. Luc has received a lot of attention lately, and that has to do with the fact that he is not human… Exactly, Luc Esape is a software robot. His main identity is on GitHub, a social network for programmers. He has made five contributions in open-source software projects. Since Luc is shy, he has presented himself as a junior software developer at first, before making its coming-out as a […]
