The PerPlex Software Engineering Lab

Background and Objectives

In 2008, Microsoft, Avanade, and TU Delft, started a long term collaboration in the field of software engineering. The goals of this collaboration are to stimulate

  1. Research in advanced software engineering topics
  2. Education of software engineering at the master level
  3. Valorization of research results in, e.g., spinoff companies and industrial collaboration
  4. Outreach of the joy of software engineering to the wider public


Founding sponsors of the Perplex lab are:

Current sponsors of the Perplex Lab also include:

People Involved

People involved in the Perplex Lab include


Research is being conducted in the areas of domain-specific languages, spreadsheet analysis and visualization, and mobile development.


Educational activities include master courses on functional programming, reactive programming, internships, and MSc thesis projects.


A key success of the project is the founding in 2010 of Infotron, a company offering tools and services in the area of spreadsheet analysis and visualization based on research conducted within the Perplex lab.


Outreach activites include involvement in various editions of the Imagine Cup, and activities within Devnology as well as the First Lego League.
