Concept Vocabularies in Programmer Sociolects (Work in Progress)

Abstract : The code a programmer writes plays a key role in communicating the intent and purpose of that code. However little is known about how this process is influenced by sociological factors. Does a programmer's background, experience, or even gender affect how they write computer programs? Understanding this may offer valuable information to software developers and educators. In this initial phase of research we focus on experience and writing, while upcoming phases will incorporate reading and comprehension. In this paper we discuss an early experiment looking at how years of programming experience might influence identifier formation.
