When we think of programming, we tend to think of programming languages. But, here is the thing. Software is at least data and if you are lucky, live objects. But, data and objects are shapeless. The way we see software is provided by the environment we use. This environment shapes our experience and dictates our perception. This makes it essential in software engineering. Not optional. Not nice to have. Essential. In this interactive talk we decompose the nature of our tools, and we argue that the development experience must be system specific. We exemplify all our messages with live demos based on the Glamorous Toolkit, the free and open-source moldable development environment.


Tudor Gîrba (tudorgirba.com) is a software environmentalist and co-founder of feenk.com where he works with an amazing team on the Glamorous Toolkit, a novel IDE that reshapes the Development eXperience (gtoolkit.com). He built all sorts of projects like the Moose platform for software and data analysis (moosetechnology.org), and he authored a couple of methods like humane assessment (humane-assessment.com). In 2014, he also won the Dahl-Nygaard Junior Prize for his research (aito.org). This was quite funny as he seems to be the only recipient of that prize that was not a university professor, even if he does hold a PhD from the University of Bern from a previous life.

These days he likes to talk about moldable development. If you want to see how much he likes that, just ask him if moldable development can fundamentally change how we approach software development.
