An application development program for authors!
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. Some examples of widgets would be buttons, text fields, calculators and other practical widgets. 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.
