New programming tools?

Glinda: Supporting Data Science with Live Programming, GUIs and a Domain-specific Language (acm.org)

I’m not going to add a picture here, because the actual paper contains a great picture, which is copyrighted. But, do we need another tool (I though), and if you think like that… well, think again.

Once I looked at the paper, I really liked the idea. This is a tool that combines the programming tasks of software engineers and such tasks like data exploration, labelling or cleaning. It’s a kind of tool like Jupyter Notebook, but it allows to interact with the data in a deeper way.

I strongly recommend to take a look at the tool. I’ve done a quick check and it looks really nice.
