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:
- 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.
- Their post on Nov 4, 2010, titled "Let's Start With Syntax", says exactly nothing about usability testing.
Unsubscribing and moving on…
