Abstract [en]

Code quality is a key issue in software development. The ability to develop software of high quality is therefore a key learning goal of computing programs. However, there are no universally accepted measures to assess the quality of code and current standards are consideredweak. Furthermore, there are many facets to code quality. Defining and explaining the concept of code quality is therefore a challenge faced by many educators. In this working group, we investigate the perceptions of code quality of students, teachers, and professional programmers. In particular, we are interested in the differences in views of code quality by students, educators, and professional programmers and which quality aspects they consider as more or less important. Furthermore, we are interested in which sources of information on code quality and its assessment are used by these groups. Eventually, this will help us to develop resources that can be used to broaden students' views on software quality.
