Salvador: a decentralized backup system
(March 2017 - April 2017)

Many modern systems that offer file backup and sharing rely on distributed storage in order to achieve load balancing, fault-tolerance, and scalability. Systems like Dropbox provide a form of interaction that resembles a client-server from the user’s perspective while leveraging a Cloud-based architecture and that is highly distributed. Dropbox is a file hosting service that enables users to store and share personal data with semantics similar to those of a local file system while storing the data across many geographically distributed servers.

Salvador does not offer file sharing capabilities, which means that the only user with access to the entire file and allowed to backup or restore that file is its owner and creator of that file. At the same time, the semantics of Salvador are similar to that of Dropbox in the sense that users can easily create, edit, or delete files on their computer while being able to recover such files by collecting its parts from peers and reconstructing the file locally.

ExpertiseAnalyzer
(January 2016 - April 2016)

The ExpertiseAnalyzer is a command-line tool written in Java that leverages the Degree-of-Authorship (DOA) as proposed by T. Fritz et al. (2010) to analyze a Git repository and identify the most experienced developers for any given file. It also determines the top-3 developers for either the entire repository or a specific branch based on the number of times a developer was identified as a “top developer” for a file.
