Charles Simonyi on Intentional Software

Business users doing programming? In this interview, Charles Simonyi presents a radical new way of building software that separates business knowledge from software engineering knowledge. The claim is to simplify the creation process for software as business experts directly contribute using their customary domain description which results in accelerated innovation.

Charles Simonyi is co-founder, President and CEO of Intentional Software Corporation. He was employed by Microsoft in 1981, where he hired and managed teams that developed Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and other best selling software applications. Simonyi worked at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) from 1972-1980 where he created the first WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) text editor.
