This will be our regular Chapter meeting forNovember 2016. Food & drink provided at no charge - just let us know you are coming.
NOTE LOCATION: At The SPACECOAST FAB LAB 2475 Palm Bay Road NE (across the street from the Harris).  See directions below.

Topic: Maintenance and Evolution of Service-Oriented Systems and Cloud-Based Environments: A 10 Year Retrospective
Speaker: Scott Tilley
About the Presentation:
The IEEE MESO(C)A series of events began with a working session at ICSM (International Conference on Software Maintenance) 2007 in Paris. The original focus was the maintenance and evolution of SOA-based systems. Five years later, at ICSM 2011 in Williamsburg, VA, the scope was expanded to include cloud-based environments. This talk summarizes the key research themes that have emerged over the last 10 years at MESOCA. The talk also outlines some of the challenges facing the community in the coming years. Many of the core activities related to system maintenance and evolution are timeless and will undoubtedly continue to be important topics in the future. However, the rapid adoption of new computing ecosystems such as mobile apps and new technical advances in areas such as big data will qualitatively and quantitatively affect both the problem space and the solution space of MESOCA as it enters its second decade.
