The ‘Practitioners’ Digest’ department in this issue of IEEE Software includes papers from the 2021 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE). A paper entitled, ‘Siri, Write the Next Method’ by Fengcai Wen and colleagues, expands upon the long-standing concept of code completion to include the automation of function signatures and function bodies. Code completion, an important support mechanism used by professional developers, helps complete method names, suggests the signature of an application programming interface function, or simply formats code. FeaRS, the authors’ new tool, takes that concept one step further by writing entire function signatures and function bodies based on the analysis of 2.5 million commits of existing functions in various open source projects. Another paper entitled ‘A Case Study of Onboarding in Software Teams: Tasks and Strategies’, by An Ju and colleagues, reports on the results of a study with 32 developers and 15 managers involved in the onboarding process.
