Blinkered, Not Graceful

I wasn’t particularly hopeful when I first heard about Grace, a new programming language being developed for teaching purposes. Having followed their blog for a while now, I’m positively underwhelmed:

  1. Early in a 21st Century full of CAD tools and other rich ways to interact with complex data, Grace's creators still insist on representing programs as sequences of ASCII tokens.
  2. Their post on Nov 4, 2010, titled "Let's Start With Syntax", says exactly nothing about usability testing.

Unsubscribing and moving on…

In the wake of posts about Shopify's support for white nationalists and DataCamp's attempts to cover up sexual harassment
