A clip from Mufti's Masters Thesis Defense. Ibn Muneers' thesis was a study, editing and annotation of a medieval manuscript regarding hadiths of al-Ahkam written by al-Hafidh Ibn Hajar (852 A.H.) called: "ad-Dirayah fee Takhreej Ahadith al-Hidayah." His work began at the chapter of Hajj and ended with the chapter of buying & selling.
What Is A Master Thesis Defense
Very helpful! Thank you for the post. I just read it while I am to enter to presentation hall for my masters thesis defense. I wish it could be sooner. Anyways, thanks again!

Understanding the basic structure of a code base and a development team are essential to get new developers up to speed in a software development project. Developers do so through the process of early experimentation with code and the creation of mental models of technical and social structures in a project. However, getting up-to-speed in a new project can be challenging due to difficulties in: finding the right place to begin explorations, expanding the focus to determine relevant resources for tasks, and identifying dependencies across project elements to gain a high-level overview of project structures.
In this thesis, I identified six challenges in the process of developers onboarding from recent research studies and an informal interview with developers. To address these challenges, I suggested automated tool support with enhanced resource finding and visual exploration. Specifically, I proposed six functional requirements for supporting developers onboarding. I then extended the project tool Tesseract to implement these functionalities to help novice developers find relevant resources and understand project structures when joining a new project. To understand how the onboarding functionalities work in supporting developers onboarding process, I conducted a user study with typical onboarding tasks in early experimentation and internalizing project structures.
The results indicated that enhanced search features, the ability to explore semantic relationships across repositories, and network-centric visualizations of project structures were very effective in supporting onboarding.
