Abstract: We present ShoreLine, a new approach to track bugs in Pharo. With ShoreLine users can report and describe errors in a program from the image, without stopping the conversation with the system. Reporting bugs is easier and faster, since you can attach any kind of information, not just text: you can easily configure the system to collect your custom data. ShoreLine allows you to access the information about defects from the image and connect together the different pieces of data, to build a knowledge graph of your system.

Bio: Tommaso Dal Sasso is a PhD student in Software Engineering at the University of Lugano, in Switzerland. He works with Professor Michele Lanza to improve the way developers describe software defects and interact with bug reports.
