- More Johnny research to appear soon: "The impact of surface features on choice of(in)secure answers by Stackoverflow readers" has been accepted to IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering.
- We will be presenting our work on app developers' (lack of) security rationales at ICSE 2020 this year, read it here already: Schrödinger's Security: Opening the Box on App Developers' Security Rationale.
- We will also present a related paper at the CHASE workshop while at ICSE, on The impact of social considerations on app developers’ choices.
- The Johnny project is participating in an initiative to provide a new form of pedagogy to teach programming concepts. This will be further extended towards teaching teaching secure coding practices. Read our paper here: Teaching the Art of Computer Programming at a Distance by Generating Dialogues using Deep Neural Networks (2019) (http://oro.open.ac.uk/62778/)
- Read some of the Johnny work published in 2019 on:
- Metrics for developer privacy attitude: Data, data, everywhere: quantifying software developers' privacy attitudes.
- Crypto API usability: Usability Smells: An Analysis of Developers’ Struggle With Crypto Libraries.
- Using crypto APIs securely: Safe Cryptography for All: Towards Visual Metaphor Driven Cryptography Building Blocks.
- The Johnny project was introduced at an Institute of Coding’s Cyber security workshop on 28th Feb, 2019 held at The Open University. Many SMEs and the wider community attended.
- Marian Petre ran a number of ‘Talking Design’ workshops on expert practices in software design at the Mozilla Foundation: in Mountain View, California, USA in May 2018, and in Toronto, Canada in January 2018.
- Johnny Project is introduced to RISCS Community.
