User Driven Programming-Modeling, and Wider Participation

A user-driven approach to visualisation, modelling, and programming can improve software and ease it’s creation and maintenance. Translation then becomes posible from the user’s representation to a software representation, and from design to implementation.

For User Driven Programming, ‘user’ can mean individual and/or organisation. The technique can be applied soonest to modelling/programming problems that require calculation. E.g. scientific, engineering, and business problems. The basis of the technique is enabling the information to be represented in a structured format e.g. XML (eXtensible Markup Language), RDF (Resourece Description Framework), RSS (this can stand for 3 different things – en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_(file_format), and OWL (Web Ontology Language). Visualisation and interaction with the information can be enabled in a standardised way because the information is structured. This enables diagrammatic editing for modelling/programming. Careful structuring of the information and models/programs simplifies the modelling/programming process. A translation process from abstract/domain models to code can then be provided using … Read More
