In AOP - another small step Anthony Eden calls for "a revolutionary change in the world of software development". He especialy puts the blame on the fact that we stiff write text.
"Programming right now is still remarkably similar to programming of 10 or 20 years ago, perhaps even further back. Specifically we are still writing text and I personally find this to be a big problem. "
I could not agree more, and as I explain in my previous post, The future of AOP ? Intentional Programming ! , I think Intentional Programming is a good candidate for this revolution. The only thing I worry about is that it's still vaporware today, but I look forward to see what IntentSoft willl release !
Anthony you should read about that: I'm sure it is right on track with the ideas you expressed in your post, and in general in your weblog (editing an Abstract Syntax Ttree instead of text, Visual Programming).
