9780123815415: No Code Required: Giving Users Tools to Transform the Web

End user programming (EUP) is nothing short of a revolution in the way people use computers. EUP tools enable all computer users to customize and automate their use of the web without learning any code. The flexibility and interactivity inherent in web 2.0, open source, and social networking make EUP possible for the masses, and this area is now exploding. It only continues to grow as users grow less patient with the limits of the Web, grow more computer savvy, and become more comfortable connecting with people around the world and sharing data with them. EUP tools are being conceptualized, developed, tested, and implemented by HCI research labs at major academic institutions (MIT, Stanford) and corporations (Adobe, Intel, IBM) - EUP research and development requires an understanding of user needs, web usage patterns, navigation style, and usability to create desirable programs. Without HCI, the products would be as confusing as the code itself. Research findings and beta systems (many now available on the mass market) have emerged from the labs and are ready for primetime. HCI developers, researchers, practitioners, and students are clamoring for reliable information. "End User Programming for the Web" takes cutting edge material from industry leaders and presents it in an accessible manner, including information on the systems, features and benefits, implementation, impact, and lessons learned. The book's editors (with a team including a EUP government backed consortium members and the co-creator of Adobe's Zoetrope) provide the book's framework - introducing each section, providing context a context and significance within the field, and ending each chapter with summary page, which compares systems to each other, specifies the system's target audience and intended use, and shows how the system deals with fundamental challenges in EUP. This is the first book on creating end user programming (EUP) tools since web 2.0, open source, and social networking made it possible. It features contributions from the creators of Adobe's Zoetrope and Intel's Mash Maker (as featured in "The New York Times", "CNET", "Business Week", and BBC). It provides cutting examples of research, development, implementation, and testing of EUP tools, complete with video demos of each system on a companion website.

Product Description:

No Code Required presents the various design, system architectures, research methodologies, and evaluation strategies that are used by end users programming on the Web. It also presents the tools that will allow users to participate in the creation of their own Web. Comprised of seven parts, the book provides basic information about the field of end-user programming. Part 1 points out that the Firefox browser is one of the differentiating factors considered for end-user programming on the Web. Part 2 discusses the automation and customization of the Web. Part 3 covers the different approaches to proposing a specialized platform for creating a new Web browser. Part 4 discusses three systems that focus on the customized tools that will be used by the end users in exploring large amounts of data on the Web. Part 5 explains the role of natural language in the end-user programming systems. Part 6 provides an overview of the assumptions on the accessibility of the Web site owners of the Web content. Lastly, Part 7 offers the idea of the Web-active end user, an individual who is seeking new technologies.

Review:

"The web is becoming not only a venue for people to receive information but increasingly a place for them to create new forms of information and to share them. The transition in the role from being a passive consumer to an active consumer as well as contributor is made possible by exactly the kind of work described in this book." -- Dr. Margaret Burnett, Dept of Computer Science, Oregon State University
