Abstract As an explicit design topic, end-user development (EUD) is rather new to human-computer interaction (HCI), although it is implicitly embedded in many design projects. What makes EUD different from other HCI topics is that in traditional HCI terms, users are experts in their tasks, and good tools should match these tasks. Conversely, end-user developers are trying to complete development tasks in which, by definition, they are not experts. Therefore, the dominating design goal of EUD tools is to compensate for a discrepancy between the user's expertise and the development task to be performed.
