Abstract

Grounded Theory (GT) is gaining popularity as research method in Software Engineering; however, it is still not widely understood. We present some patterns based on the use of GT to study Software Engineering contexts including our own experiences of applying classic GT in an attempt to make it more accessible for Software Engineering researchers (aka "geeks").
