How many developers write papers about some software? How many developers prefer to write blog posts? Is it nice to write a literate program that will be read and written like a blog? Although this idea is not mature yet, I think is somehow interesting. Is literate programming 2.0 a good name for it?
- A post will be the equivalent to a patch: To add a new feature, or modify an existent feature, you jut write a post with its description and code. — Long patches are not welcome 😉
- The Blog will be your web-based IDE: Take a look at this video!
The preparation of an experiment for this will require some time. The results will depend on the tools used for literate programming 2.0. Despite this, maybe with a prototype we will be able to get useful information.
