task. In this short talk, we present the Relo project, which is an open source Eclipse plug-in that many developers have found useful while working with complex code. Relo has been designed to help manage developers' context while they interactively and incrementally explore the underlying codebases. Relo uses visualizations that try to be intuitive, with diagrams similar to UML, while at the same time allowing developers to zoom in to view details and edit the code using embedded text editors. These diagrams represent only a small manageable part of the code and do not include irrelevant details allowing a user to focus on the important code relationships.

The short talk gives a quick overview of Relo, with more details available on the tools website and at the EclipseCon demo.

Vineet Sinha has been working for the last six years in helping users understand and work with large structured information spaces. He is currently a PhD candidate at the MIT CS+AI Lab, and the lead developer of the Relo project. Before joining MIT, Vineet has worked as a software engineer for over 2 years, including working with large software projects such as Microsoft Office.
