Description

Leader of the group Software Analysis and Transformation: Jurgen Vinju.

SWAT studies software systems: their design, construction and evolution. Our mission is to learn to understand software systems and to improve their quality. In particular, we study the causes of software complexity – a major cause of technology failure in society – and investigate how complex systems can be made simpler and more reliable. We analyze and visualize software systems, transforming them into better versions of themselves. We also generate new software with the goal of simplifying it through automation and abstraction. We keep our feet on the ground by working with corporate IT departments on streamlining their software systems and making them more reliable. Putting our ideas into practice is the best way to ensure they work.

Postdoc on the subject of hybrid polystore query language design and implementation

TYPHON is an EU H2020 project, which aims at providing an industry-validated methodology and integrated technical offering for designing, developing, querying, evolving, analysing and monitoring scalable hybrid data persistence architectures that will meet the growing scalability and heterogeneity requirements of the European industry. Designing and deploying a hybrid data persistence architecture that involves a combination of relational and NoSQL databases, and which can manage different types of structured and textual data (polystores for conciseness), is a complex, technically challenging, and error-prone task.
