An application development program for authors!
Fluency allows people with good ideas but limited or no programming experience to develop and release working programs without having to look at code. It uses widgets that talk to each other by sending information across connections.
Some examples of widgets are buttons, text fields, calculators or even an AIM chat client.
The project is a growing, open-source collaboration that has been in development since 2004 by Professor Gregory Rawlin's computer science students at Indiana University.
