@dosnostalgic Also, finding information about this is hard. The names of the company and product are not great for searching.

@dosnostalgic I can remember getting a talk from a company working on something like this when I did my “IT for arts graduates” masters back in the early 90s. I decided I didn’t need to pay attention and for once it was the right choice.

@dosnostalgic I had math classes in High School where they gave us very basic algorithmic classes, and we had to use a GUI(only software that used dropdowns to make you write basic algorithms.

And you had to press a button

to make a new line

for every line

A friend and I negociated to do the whole thing in C++ tbh xD

@dosnostalgic Cute: They call it "desktop programming" as a parallel to "desktop publishing" which was huge at the time.
