New KMi BookJohn Domingue, Monday 02 February 1998 | Annotate
In the past decade, high quality interfaces have become standard in a growing number of areas such as games and CD-ROM-based encyclopedias. Yet the overwhelming majority of programmers edit their code using a single font within a single window and view code execution via the hand insertion of print statements.
Software Visualization (SV) redresses this unbalance by using typography, graphics, and animation techniques to show program code, data, and control flow. Software Visualization: Programming as a Multimedia Experience, published by MIT Press, describes the history of SV, techniques and frameworks for its construction, its use in education and program debugging, and recent attempts to evaluate its effectiveness. The book has a strong KMi presence as two of the four editors and around a quarter of the chapters authors are from KMi.
More information on the book can be found at the MIT Press overview.
There's also a website for KMI's research on SV
