Abstract

The act of computer programming is generally considered to be temporally removed from a computer program’s execution. In this paper we discuss the idea of programming as an activity that takes place within the temporal bounds of a real-time computational process and its interactions with the physical world. We ground these ideas within the context of livecoding – a live audiovisual performance practice. We then describe how the development of the programming environment “Impromptu” has addressed our ideas of programming with time and the notion of the programmer as an agent in a cyber-physical system.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
