  1. What is Fluency?
  2. The Fluency program allows people with brilliant ideas and limited programming experience to develop and release working programs without having to look at code. It uses widgets, developed by enthusiastic volunteer programmers, that connect to each other and send data, creating a working program.

The amazing thing about this project is that it is a growing, open-source collaboration that has been in development since 2004 by the brilliant computer science students at Indiana University.
