Abstract

Join me in this experiment, we'll make some Go programs visually without writing a single line of Go code.

Programming will be a required skill in the future, but for some people can be scary and difficult at first: too many keywords or too many grammar rules. We could lower the entry bar with a visual programming language, like Scratch is being taught at school. Could Go be a good option for this task? In this talk you could learn what can be done, the problems encountered and how to contribute to the future of this new way of programming Go.

According to the Wikipedia, a visual programming language (VPL) is any programming language that lets users create programs by manipulating program elements graphically rather than by specifying them textually.
