Abstract

Microtask programming [4] is a solution to promote distributed development in industry. The key idea of microtask programming is to reduce face-to-face communication across developers by splitting the development task of software into independent microtasks. Such microtasks can be completed by crowd workers who work remotely and at their preferable time such as early morning. Dedicated developers who have the responsibility for the progress of development split the task into microtasks, and distribute them to crowd workers. Hence, microtask programming has these two actors. Our research team reported that microtask programming has potential benefits such as the fluidity of project assignments in industrial companies [4]. However, we suppose it still has challenges. In addition, it is still unclear what are future research direction to support both actors in microtask programming, though our research team has conducted three studies for microtask programming so far [2]-[4].
