Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


End- User Computing, End- User Development, End- User Software Engineering and related approaches have experienced an enormous wave of attention currently. As modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) pervade more and more areas not only of our professional, but also of our private lives, it becomes necessary for end users to understand and monitor their technological environments as well as to be able to configure or even program them. The third wave of End-User Computing poses new challenges to research in several disciplines of Computer Science and Information systems. The contributions to this Special Issue on End-User Development (EUD) cover those parts of the challenges that extend the scope of EUD by acknowledging and overcoming cultural breaches between professional programming and EUD. In this contribution we give a brief overview of these contributions as well as some comments on future research on EUD.
