This project was conducted with Microsoft in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The purpose was to design and implement a tool that would allow users to easily identify which parts of a software project had high levels of code churn. The tool we developed interfaces with Microsoft's internal source control systems, calculates churn measures for each file, and makes the churn data available through a web interface. By analyzing this churn data, software developers can identify areas of code likely to contain defects.
