Breaking down and making up - a lens for conversing with compilers
Luke Church, Emma Söderberg, Alan T. McCabe
Abstract: This paper proposes a ‘tool for thinking with’: that we can describe the interaction between people and computers, and especially people and developer tools, as a form of conversation. We outline this perspective, construct a work in progress analytical frame, and use it to talk about a couple of different examples and draw implications for future work.
