Maisqual is a recursive acronym standing for "Maisqual Automagically Improves Software QUALity". It is a research project about "Mining Software Engineering Data for Useful Knowledge". By applying data mining algorithms and methods to software engineering data, we aim to get a new level of understanding to help enhance the quality of software development projects.
The Maisqual project was funded by SQuORING Technologies in 2011-2014 in collaboration with Philippe Preux from the SequeL team. SequeL is an acronym for Sequential Learning; it is a joint research project of the LIFL (Laboratoire d’Informatique Fondamentale de Lille, Université de Lille 3), the CNRS (Centre National de Recherche Scientifique) and the INRIA (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique Appliquée) located in the Lille-Nord Europe research center.
This work is still available on the Maisqual wiki hosted by SQuORING Technologies. The company decided to publish this material as a contribution to the field of software engineering. Thanks to them!
