Title: ‘Building on Blockly – experience with Google's Visual Programming language’

Blockly is a block based programming language that offers unique benefits for research in many different areas. Though Blockly appears to offer a Scratch like approach, Blockly does not include its own language, but can be used to generate executable code in many different languages – Python, PHP, Javascript and Dart are included ‘out of the box’. Other languages can be added, even XML, JSON, etc. This talk will show experience using Blockly as a Cultural Heritage (Museum/Exhibition) Domain Specific Visual language, in particular focused on event based programming for non programmers (curators/exhibition professionals).
