Programming and development is something that scares a lot of people. As someone who created a programming language for beginners, I have firsthand experience with this. No matter how simple you make it for them, it can still be intimidating. Part of the reason for this is that there are a lot of preconceived notions about programming that aren’t exactly true anymore. If you can show someone how easy and enjoyable programming can really be, then they may begin to develop an interest in doing some of it on their own. A tool called Produle makes developing Flash applications accessible to everyone.

Yes, even something like Flash may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. The process of building an application in Produle has been simplified to the point that it feels like you’re using Photoshop. No coding is required, and a selection of components are available for you to insert in the editor and manipulate. Once you’ve designed your masterpiece, you just publish and share it without breaking a sweat. There’s no need anymore to leave development to the developers.
