Software development is a complex activity, but since software is everywhere and it is necessary to achieve the highest quality possible. High technical skills, knowledge and competence of a software developer are not the only factors which inuence the final product. Good attitudes, communication skills and good manners are equally as important. In this paper we focused our attention on understanding how developer sentiment and emotions evolved over time during the development process of 10 systems, considering affectiveness as time series. We studied seasonality, randomness and correlations. Results showed that there was not a significant correlation among joy and love, sadness and anger, sentiment and joy. Regarding seasonality and randomness, results showed that in the majority of the cases, the analysed time series are seasonal and not random.",
