Programming skills have been considered more important than ever for people to thrive in the age of the digital economy. Meanwhile, computers have become ubiquitous in our life and work, and the way they are programmed is in need of fundamental improvements. In this talk, I introduce research on creating toolkits and integrated development environments that help people to create, edit, and make use of programs, and discuss the future of programming.
