    Summary form only given. We envision future work and play environments that are more effectively human-centered with the user's computing interface being more closely integrated with the physical surroundings than today's conventional computer display screens and keyboards. We are working toward realizable versions of such environments, in which multiple video projectors and digital cameras enable... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. Since its adoption in 1997, the unified modeling language (UML) has proved very popular with software engineers and has become the de facto standard as a visual modeling language for software engineers. However, this software focus of UML has discouraged many systems engineers from adopting it in earnest. Those who did adopt UML developed strategies to cope with its shortc... View full abstract»

    We describe SDL, an integrated suite of visual languages aimed at supporting the process of designing statistical surveys. SDL comprises four diagrammatic notations: survey diagrams, survey data diagrams, survey analysis diagrams and survey process diagrams. A proof of concept environment supporting SDL is also presented, together with a cognitive dimensions evaluation of that environment and a co... View full abstract»

    We present HyperFlow, a novel visual language for information analysis that combines features from visual dataflow and visual query languages into a unified framework. HyperFlow is designed to make it easier for users to retrieve, filter, and manipulate information, using databases alongside e.g. Web services, in a transparent, intuitive, reproducible and traceable manner. It allows users to visua... View full abstract»

    We present a semi-automatic debugger for spreadsheet systems that is specifically targeted at end-user programmers. Users can report expected values for cells that yield incorrect results. The system then generates change suggestions that could correct the error. Users can interactively explore, apply, refine, or reject these change suggestions. The computation of change suggestions is based on a ... View full abstract»

  • Garbage in, garbage out? An empirical look at oracle mistakes by end-user programmers

    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (184 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    End-user programmers, because they are human, make mistakes. However, past research has not considered how visual end-user debugging devices could be designed to ameliorate the effects of mistakes. This paper empirically examines oracle mistakes - mistakes users make about which values are right and which are wrong - to reveal differences in how different types of oracle mistakes impact the qualit...

    Despite years of availability of testing tools, professional software developers still seem to need better support to determine the effectiveness of their tests. Without improvements in this area, inadequate testing of software seems likely to remain a major problem. To address this problem, industry and researchers have proposed systems that visualize "testedness" for end-user and professional de... View full abstract»

    Design by contract (DbC) is widely acknowledged to be a powerful technique for creating reliable software. DbC allows developers to specify the behavior of an operation precisely by pre- and post-conditions. Existing DbC approaches predominantly use textual representations of contracts to annotate the actual program code with assertions. In the unified modeling language (UML), the textual object c...

  • Formal integration of inheritance with typed attributed graph transformation for efficient VL definition and model manipulation

    Several approaches exist to define a visual language (VL). Among those the meta-modeling approach used to define the Unified Modeling Language (UML), and the graph transformation approach are very popular. Especially the combination of both, using meta-modeling to define the syntax of a VL and graph transformation for specifying model transformations has been considered conceptually and explored i...

    Model transformation (MT) is a key technology in the model-driven development approach of software engineering that provides automated means to capture the evolution of models and mappings between modeling languages. The pattern and rule-based paradigm of graph transformation is considered a very popular approach for specifying such model transformations. While the expressiveness of different MT s...

    Decentralized and complex systems can be powerful tools for modeling concepts in mathematics, science and engineering. Star Logo and NetLogo were the first systems to allow middle and high school children to build dynamic models from many thousands of programmable particles. This has inspired Kedama: an authoring system that simplifies the scripting and construction of massively parallel models to... View full abstract»

    Programmers who suffer from repetitive stress injuries find it difficult to spend long amounts of time typing code. Speech interfaces can help developers reduce their dependence on typing. However, existing programming by voice techniques make it awkward for programmers to enter and edit program text. To design a better alternative, we conducted a study to learn how software developers naturally v... View full abstract»
