Interests in Visual and Graphical Programming Languages is growing. Advances in software technology and UX/UI design, along with computers now being ubiquitous, means we are ready for a new evolution in approaches to software development. The primary goal of this group is to build up a strong community of people who are interested in Visual Programming Languages and Environments. This not only goes for those who want to see a technological leap, but for UX/UI designers who want to solve some of the most challenging problems that could be faced in the UX/UI design space: creating Visual Programming Environments.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
