Conference Paper
Scientific computing has become an area of growing importance. Across fields such as biology, education, physics, or others, people are increasingly using scientific computing to model and understand the world around them. Despite the clear need, almost no systematic analysis has been conducted on how students in fields outside of computer science...

... Stefik's team is working to add data science functionality to their evidence-based programming language. As a first step toward understanding which elements of existing languages might be best to emulate, they ran an experiment comparing the three main R syntaxes (Rafalski et al. 2019). The study showed no statistically significant difference between any of the three syntaxes with regard to time to completion or number of errors. ...
... [cs.HC] 17 Aug 2022 page design often requires blind developers to code in HTML and CSS, which has a series of accessibility challenges [33]. Responding to these issues, researchers have proposed workshops and online courses that help blind users learn web programming using screen readers [34,60]. Assistive programming tools such as CodeTalk [50] and StructJumper [6] can also help blind users understand the semantic meaning of code structures. ...
