M.Sc. Paul Maximilian Bittner

Discovering ways for synchronising and aligning diverged forks, branches, and code clones in general is the main focus of my work. The key idea is to reduce the effort for developers as much as possible while being transparent and impairing their workflow as little as possible. Currently, I am working on a methodology for recording feature-to-code traces during software development that is voluntary for developers.

In general, I'm interested in everything that makes programming easier with a focus on variability management: software product lines, cool libraries or frameworks, programming language concepts, and game engines. Until January'20, I was part of the great team of the Institute of Computer Graphics at TU Braunschweig where I also gained a broad background on both computer graphics and vision.

Anything of your interest? Don't hesitate to contact me.
