Tarkan, Sureyya, Sazawal, Vibha, Druin, Allison, Golub, Evan, Bonsignore, Elizabeth M., Walsh, Greg and Atrash, Zeina (2010): Toque: designing a cooking-based programming language for and with children. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 2417-2426. Available online

An intergenerational design team of children (ages 7-11 years old) along with graduate students and faculty in computer science and information studies developed a programming language for children, Toque. Concrete real-world cooking scenarios were used as programming metaphors to support an accessible programming learning experience. The Wiimote and Nunchuk were used as physical programming input devices. The programs that were created were pictorial recipes which dynamically controlled animations of an on-screen chef preparing virtual dishes in a graphical kitchen environment. Through multiple design sessions, programming strategies were explored, cooking metaphors were developed and, prototypes of the Toque environment were iterated. Results of these design experiences have shown us the importance of pair-programming, programming by storytelling, parallel programming, function-argument relationships, and the role of tangibility in overcoming challenges with constraints imposed by the system design.

Phang, Khoo Yit, Hicks, Michael, Foster, Jeffrey S. and Sazawal, Vibha (2008). Directing JavaScript with Arrows (Functional Pearl), Technical Report CS-TR-4923. Dept. of Computer Science, University of Maryland

JavaScript, being a single-threaded language, makes extensive use of event-driven programming to enable responsive web applications. However, standard approaches to sequencing events are messy, and often lead to code that is difficult to understand and maintain. We have found that arrows, a generalization of monads, are an elegant solution to this problem. Arrows allow us to easily write asynchronous programs in small, modular units of code, and flexibly compose them in many different ways, while nicely abstracting the details of asynchronous program composition. In particular, we show how to use arrows to construct a variety of state machines, such as autoscrollers and drag-and-drop handlers.

Partridge, Kurt, Chatterjee, Saurav, Sazawal, Vibha, Borriello, Gaetano and Want, Roy (2002): TiltType: accelerometer-supported text entry for very small devices. In: Beaudouin-Lafon, Michel (ed.) Proceedings of the 15th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology October 27-30, 2002, Paris, France. pp. 201-204. Available online

TiltType is a novel text entry technique for mobile devices. To enter a character, the user tilts the device and presses one or more buttons. The character chosen depends on the button pressed, the direction of tilt, and the angle of tilt. TiltType consumes minimal power and requires little board space, making it appropriate for wristwatch-sized devices. But because controlled tilting of one's forearm is fatiguing, a wristwatch using this technique must be easily removable from its wriststrap. Applications include two-way paging, text entry for watch computers, web browsing, numeric entry for calculator watches, and existing applications for PDAs.
