Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle


Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting talk by Bret Victor. He has designed experimental UI concepts for Apple and others. To me its interesting to see how text based languages could catch up to LabVIEW's graphical style and even exceed it with instant visual feedback. Its also interesting to see how the IDE in any language could be improved.

The video goes much deeper than programming languages and delves into life principals. Well worth the watch.

So. Where can I download the IDE? (I like it!)

The example of an electrical circuit was the original premis of labview. We have had this sort of functionality since day dot (custom probes with a waveform graph). I think custom probes are generally underused and i'd love to see a custom probe pack with waveforms, plots etc.
