Living in your Programming Environment: Enabling Exploratory Programming for Productivity Tools
Knowledge workers can benefit from adaptable software tools as they often have individual work flows adapted to their circumstances. To react directly to new use cases, users should be able to adapt the tools while using them and get immediate feedback on their adaptation. Exploratory programming environments already support such an exploratory style for developing software, however they are not used for everyday productivity tasks. In this paper, we describe our first steps towards an exploratory programming environment suitable for everyday productivity tasks. From our experiences of using the environment for eight months, we distilled features which improve adaptability and productivity of such environments.
