The Programming Language as Human Interface
Presented at the CHI Sparks, The Hague, Netherlands
Programming languages are mostly not designed for humans, but for computers. As a result, programming time is increased by the necessity for programmers to translate problem description into a step-wise method of solving the problem. This demonstration shows a step towards producing more human-oriented programming languages, by developing an interactive map application in a language that allows specification of what needs to be solved rather than how to solve it.
