PLATEAU 2009 Panel

"Bridging the Gap Between Programming Languages and Human-Computer Interaction"

  • 1630-1730

Are today's programming languages as easy to read and write as they could be? Are they good at communicating the programmer's intent to others? Can programing language designers learn anything from the Human-computer interaction community that will help us design better languages?

Three distinguished panelists will discuss their ideas around this issue, and open the discussion to the workshop participants.
