    Abstract

    Visual programming is the idea of using graphical icons to create programs. I take a look at available solutions and challenges facing visual languages. Keeping these challenges in mind, I measure the suitability of Blockly and highlight the advantages of using Blockly for creating a visual programming environment for the J programming language. Blockly is an open source general purpose visual programming language designed by Google which provides a wide range of features and is meant to be customized to the user’s needs. I also discuss features of the J programming language that make it suitable for use in visual programming language. The result is a visual programming environment for the tacit subset of the J programming language.
