Second time I've run into something by Amy Ko today. The first was this article, How my broken elbow made the ableism of computer programming personal, sent to me by a podcast listener. Glad to see her work out there in the wild.
This is a really amazing project that resonates strongly with the work I do! Amy Ko’s work is, so far, the only work I’ve come across that pushes accessibility all the way down to PL concerns, and I AM HERE FOR IT.
(also, I think Amy Ko’s name should be in our mouths whenever we talk about complexity/simplicity, and not Rich Hickey’s 😆 )
Yes really nice work, and an interesting counterpoint to the push for natural language-like (generally English-like) programming languages.
