The breaking third wave of the human-centric study of programming?

Luke Church, University of Cambridge

Abstract:

The study of Human Computer Interaction has been described in three waves. According to Bødker, the first wave focussed on cognitive science and human factors, the  second focussed on groups working together and the third on the broad  adoption of technology thoughout everyday lives and culture. In this talk I apply this lens to the human centric study of programming,  discussing its evolution from the study of human performance in  programming, to the study of programming as a collaborative activity. I  then consider the prospects and implications for the study of  programming as culture and what new research directions it points to for the technical, political and philosophical study of programming  languages.
