:language_code: pt_br ========== Adessowiki ========== The Executable Wiki for Scientific Programming ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :date: April 6th, 2010 :author: Roberto A. Lotufo and Rubens C. Machado :organization: UNICAMP / CTI :subject: Adessowiki :logo: Adessowiki, April/2010 :email: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com :pagetrans: Replace Adessowiki ---------- * Concept * It is a wiki, where the programming code can be embedded in the text. It is executed in the server when the page is rendered updating images, figures and output text. * **Documents or Applications** * Centralized; * Collaborative; * Executable Collaborative executable documents ---------------------------------- * Collaborative Structured Text (like wiki) * Allows the insertion of small parts of code (currently Python, C++) in the text. The graphics, plots, images are displayed as figures in the document * Documents can be converted to: * PDF * Slide show * HTML * RTF (Word for Windows) Advantages ---------- * No software installation or configuration * The client requires just a web browser * Collaborative as any wiki * Centralized server and application. New versions are easier to make and mantain * Centralized data base of images * Usually, a professor has the software knowledge spread among the notebooks of its students. AdessoWiki integrates and keeps the algorithms and implementation knowledge constantly available Possible scenarios ------------------ * Teaching * Wiki, Code and Data - scientific programming * Environment for collaborative coding and documentation * Research * Scientific report, paper, thesis * All information in one place and synchronized * Solution development * Client and developers in a collaborative work Teaching -------- * Easy to verify if the code works * Possible to compare different solutions to the same problem * Prevents plagiarism (wiki log capabilities) * Incentives collaboration (intra and inter classes) * Solutions are easily reclycled as the data, the code and its programming environment are available for all in a centralized manner Research -------- * Scientific experiments can be readily reproduced * Documents contain source code, data, equations, descriptions and compilation tools together and synchronized * Encyclopedia of algorithms with technical explanations * E-book of the future -- text, source code and data for reader consumer and collaboration * Comparison and assessment of scientific contribution -- future of paper review process * Competitions for open innovation Applications ------------ * Collaborative asynchronous development process among client and developers * Client can provide data, problem description * Developers (collaborative) provide solutions * Client can verify quality of results and give feedback * No software installation at the client * Software environment are the same for development and deployment Experiences to date ------------------- * A whole morphological chapter was written using an earlier version of this tool. Now published Academic Press, 2008. * Being used as report and demonstrations since 1st semester 2008. * First use in an environment for class, 2nd semester 2008. * Currently use for Image Processing and Computer Vision Class at Unicamp, UDESC, UFLA and USP Next Steps ---------- * Improved user interface, navigation and organization of the documents. * Scalabity to expand the system to provide a large number of users simultaneously accessing the system Competitive advantages ---------------------- * Future of scientific programming * Creation of a Wikipedia of algorithms and programming * End of individual license installation and distribution * E-Book editors might be solution providers to this platform Collaborator welcome -------------------- If you want to use the system or collaborate, please contact us.
