Developer Tools with Josh Varty

Software Engineering Daily Play Button Pause Button

When you are working on a program, a lot of things are going through your head. In some sense, you become part machine when you are programming. Learnable Programming is a concept that facilitates this, by showing developers what the computer is doing in real time, before compiling.

In this episode, Josh Varty, co-founder of Code Connect Inc., talks to Edaena Salinas about incorporating concepts from Learnable Programming into Visual Studio and C# by showing developers what the computer is thinking while they are typing. Code Connect lets a developer immediately see what value a variable is taking, and provide test values to troubleshoot a portion of code to understand how different code paths are going to work. This is instead of having to compile and run the full program.

If you have ever thought about making developer tools for an IDE or a programming language, this episode provides some great information.
