Building trust among remote developers is challenging because trust typically grows through close face-to-face interaction. In this paper, we present the preparatory design of an empirical study aimed to assess whether affective trust, established through social communication between developers, is a predictor of successful collaboration in distributed projects. Specifically, we intend to measure affective trust through sentiment analysis of pull-request comments.

Abstract

Building trust among remote developers is challenging because trust typically grows through close face-to-face interaction. In this paper, we present the preparatory design of an empirical study aimed to assess whether affective trust, established through social communication between developers, is a predictor of successful collaboration in distributed projects. Specifically, we intend to measure affective trust through sentiment analysis of pull-request comments.
