Blockly - A visual programming editor
Blockly is a web-based, graphical programming editor. Users can drag blocks together to build an application. No typing required. Check out our sample applications: Puzzle - Learn how blocks work while solving this simple country quiz. Maze - Use Blockly to solve a maze. Blockly is international. Blockly is a component that may be useful for a variety of projects, including educational tools. External projects using Blockly include: MIT App Inventor - IDE for Android apps. We have created the maze tutorial to introduce children to programming and have more tutorials under construction.

Waterbear - a visual language for Javacript Waterbear, a new "Scratch- like" visual programming language made its debut at a JavaScript conference this week. Waterbear is the brainchild of Dethe Elza who presented it at the JSConf held in Portland on 2-3 May 2011. Inspired by Alan Kay's Squeak language and Semour Papert's Mindstorms he hope it will introduce programming concepts to learners, including children. His choice of the name Waterbear is because he want it to be an extremely robust language - like the microscopic animals that are found in extreme environments over he entire world. This news item is a lot easier to understand if you already know about the Scratch programming language.

Bare Bones Interpreter Beware of the Turing tar-pit in which everything is possible but nothing of interest is easy. —Alan Perlis News Introduction Day 1: Read Other People’s Code This is day one of our series on how to become a better developer in 30 days. During this series, I will discuss during one month 30 ways for anyone to become a better developer. Today, I would like to talk about something that few people do voluntarily: reading other peoples code. Writing good code is the goal of most developers, but what we sometimes forget is that in order to become good writers we also need to be good readers. This is just a reality that has been verified since elementary school, when we first learned to write our language by reading how other writers do their job.

brace Brace is a dialect of C that looks like Python. Brace has coroutines, hygienic macros, header generation, #! scripting and cached executables, libraries with graphics and sound, and many animated demos. How do I hack source code? [Archive] Wybiral December 17th, 2006, 11:34 PM Well, you have to specify which language it was written in. If it is open source, you don't have to do anything... If it is compiled, you will either need a disassembler/decompiler or a hex editor...
