🍩 Exploring Spaces 🐦 Bootstrapping Research & Dynamicland 📢 LIVE Workshop on Live Programming

Two Minute Week

🎥 Live Probe via Dany

I have some progress in miqula, it can now show the current data of a node.

The video is with voiceover, hopefully makes it easier to follow. (albeit this is not a tutorial of sorts)

🧵 conversation

Just factored out the "linking" code. Its intended to be the simplest possible way to securely get the same AES key onto multiple machines.

🎈 Glamorous Toolkit via Tudor Girba

🧵 conversation

For those that are intrigued by Glamorous Toolkit, perhaps the following talk can be interesting:

Wednesday, April 24, 8pm CET

UK Smalltalk User Group

What exactly is Glamorous Toolkit?

To some people Glamorous Toolkit is a Pharo environment. To others it's a knowledge management system. Others might see a code analysis platform, a data visualization or an API browsing tool. Yet others see the graphical stack with its interactive editors. Glamorous Toolkit is all of these. But it's really also none of these. These are merely examples of the many forms the environment can be molded to. And there can be many more. Glamorous Toolkit is primarily an environment that makes it possible to create many experiences seamlessly and contextually. This then leads to a new way of programming that we call Moldable Development.

🍩 Exploring Spaces 1: Torus via Elliot

🧵 conversation

Yesterday I taped together a paper torus, built some inputs that wrap around like a torus, and drew some lines on a torus. I wrote a little post about my exploration! Exploring Spaces 1: Torus Would love to hear your feedback, criticism, adjacent thoughts, etc!

♾️ Exploring Spaces 2: Twisted Taping via Elliot

🧵 conversation

I wrote another little post, "Exploring Spaces 2: Twisted Taping". I made a twisted paper strip this time, and made some more interactive spaces you can try moving around in Exploring Spaces 2: Twisted Taping.

I really enjoyed the feedback and adjacent thoughts on the last one from Joshua Horowitz and Konrad Hinsen! Once again, I'd love to hear feedback, criticism, and adjacent thoughts 🙂

🧮 You Draw Inflation 📈 via Declan

🧵 conversation

I made a 'you draw it' type input widget where you draw inflation. I'm trying to permit being a little bit deliberate about scenarios too. It's something I'll develop for defining scenarios for other calculation models. It's in a short blog post

💬 Jim Meyer

🧵 conversation

The future of code involves waiting for Copilots (Even though they get faster all the time, we'll just ask more and more of them).

We took a stab at visualizing the design decisions that our Copilot makes while it's coding the design you've prompted it for.

Instead of just spinners or the raw stream of text like chat UIs, we overlay this visualization where the design will appear on the canvas. Each visualization reflects a design variant that Copilot works on, and is computed in real-time based on the token streams from the LLM.

🧵 conversation

Here is my 3rd exploring spaces post about taping -∞ and +∞ together 🙂♾Exploring Spaces 3: Taping Infinity

Devlog Together

💬 Nilesh Trivedi

🧵 conversation

Currently experimenting with this idea of adding Types and Reactivity to JSON as a domain-specific language for LLMs to generate miniapps or reactive documents on the fly.



Thinking Together

🔌 Composability: Designing a Visual Programming Language via John Austin

🧵 conversation

Ok, I've been thinking a lot about composable systems recently, and why I don't find visual programming languages like blueprints very flexible. Wrote up a blog post about it. Basically, I think the value graph is a more fundamental primitive for computation than execution graphs. Composability: Designing a Visual Programming Language

💬 Greg Bylenok

🧵 conversation

Does anyone else think of "configuring" as distinct from "programming"? Some activities I consider "configuring" and not "programming": much devops work such as Terraform, YML files for build pipelines, even commonly labeled "programming" of a VCR/DVR.

📝 openapic: openapi compiler like protoc | Ivan Chebykin via Ivan Chebykin

🧵 conversation

Hi everyone, I'm currently trying to think of ways to improve OpenAPI developer experience, can someone check out the design doc for a simplified OpenAPI generator: chebykin.org/posts/openapic

💬 Dennis Hansen

🧵 conversation

Random thought/question. I've noticed canvas based design tools have converged on a panel configuration of "Layers | Canvas | Properties | (and sometimes Timeline)"-- as opposed solving the underlying needs another way. Is this pattern the end-all-be-all? Or a local maxima? I tend to think the later.


📝 Nanopublications: Rethinking global knowledge sharing (Tobias Kuhn) via Andreas S

🧵 conversation

Nanopublications are looking really interesting to me, I hope for you too 🙂 : Nanopublications: Rethinking global knowledge sharing (Tobias Kuhn)

🧵 conversation

Someone on twitter scraped Dynamicland to find a few amazing unlisted Bret Victor talks on YouTube. Don’t think he’d mind this community seeing them :).

This is new to me. Anyone ever heard of it?

📢 LIVE 2024: The Tenth Workshop on Live Programming via Joshua Horowitz

🧵 conversation

This year I’m helping organize LIVE, the Workshop on Live Programming. A lot of folk here in FoC are working on projects related to liveness… I encourage you to consider submitting your work!

(Here, “live programming” means “getting immediate feedback on the behavior of your program even while you’re programming it”. That includes “Learnable Programming”-style interfaces, spreadsheets, notebooks, REPL-y stuff, interfaces for live performances with code, many interfaces for making art with code...)

LIVE is an academic conference, but it’s attracted great work from people both in and outside the academy. Submitting a project to LIVE might be an opportunity to communicate about your work in a new way and get thoughtful feedback on it from a new community. (We have some tips for non-academics in our FAQ.)

The submission deadline is July 7 . The workshop will be some day TBD October 20-25, 2024 in Los Angeles .

Feel free to DM me if you have questions or concerns; I’d be excited to help out. 🙏



📝 platform via Assaf

🧵 conversation

Anybody interested in bio/drug discovery applications? I’m working on a platform which aims to answer complex biological questions by talking to scientists. It’s not an autocomplete or a copilot. It’s a real AI developer that does all the coding while scientists give it feedback. Would love to chat about this domain or specific application and get your feedback.
