Making progress: Barriers to success in end-user developers' physical prototyping

Booth, T. (2015). Making progress: Barriers to success in end-user developers' physical prototyping. Proceedings of IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing, VL/HCC, 2015-D, pp. 299-300. doi: 10.1109/VLHCC.2015.7357236


Previous research has investigated difficulties faced by novice and end-user programmers and suggested how these could be solved. However, there has been scant research investigating barriers faced by end-user developers (EUDs) constructing and programming physical prototypes, and how these could be overcome. I report the results of an empirical study designed to uncover barriers for EUDs in physical prototyping, with a view to design support for overcoming them.
