Your IDE Sucks

By Deane Barker on July 8, 2012

Bret Victor – Inventing on Principle: This video is flat amazing.  This guy has re-envisioned the entire concept and value of the IDE.

Watch the fist six minutes of it, and know that he’s just cracked the surface at that point and even better demos are coming up.  At that point, I dare you to stop watching.

I have no idea if this IDE actually exists for real.  I’m a little afraid to go look, frankly.



  1. Check out Light Table by Chris Granger — it’s inspired by this talk (and some thinking of his own). He did a kickstarter to get initial funding, and I think there’s a demo for it (but I don’t have a link, sorry).
