TAO, the Tcl Architecture of Objects

Author: Sean Woods


Technical design is only half of a successful product. User interface is an important, but oft overlooked component of design. Particularly in products that are geared for developers. TAO is an attempt by Sean Woods, to develop an architecture that is more than a rapid prototyping system. It is a rapid developer immersion system as well. TAO is an programming architecture that is designed by developers for developers. It is primarily designed for ever changing systems like web content. This paper will address both the technical and the psychological strategies employed by TAO to deliver web content to staff at the Franklin Institute Science Museum.
