Jean Paliès has been programming for 15 years. Over the past two years, he is doing so as a freelance, lucky enough to pair and mob program remotely everyday. He also likes to help children figure out how to make computers do things for them
In the early 2000s, I got puzzled by the small size of replay files for video games. I then dug into them and found some food for thought!
Do you know visual programming?
Scratch, Blockly, MBlock are some visual programming languages we use to teach kids how to code.
Kids can use them, so can adults!
IoT, REST calls, functionnal testing... what can we do with these languages? How are they built?
After an introduction to several visual programming tools, we will focus on Blockly and look under its hood. We will create our own blocks, and then build a visual DSL to generate functionnal tests, that non "coders" can code.
