Tributary - live and responsive visual coding

As in the blog post: http://enja.org/2012/05/07/floating-down-a-tributary/

Tributary is a web interface for live and responsive visual coding. It includes a code editor and provides some popular javascript libraries for visual programming. The core concept of tributary comes from the inspirational Bret Victor video and the implementation is derived from Gabriel Florit’s water project.See video for yourself:

How to design a good API

Image
Joshua Bloch presentation about designing API and why this is important.

http://lcsd05.cs.tamu.edu/slides/keynote.pdf

I've read only slides but I think that most of talk content is in them, but if you have time try to watch video (or listen to it) and read slides at the same time.

This isn't only about API but much more than that, API is just the beginning.
