Light Table: a better way to write code

Having successfully completed Kickstarter funding in June this year, IDE Light Table has now been rewritten from the ground up, resulting in a sleeker, more robust foundation on which to build.

According to co-founder Rob Attorri, Light Table was created to address a fundamental disconnect developers have with their creations: "The analogy we used at Y Combinator was that being a developer is like being a painter wearing a blindfold: when you paint a stroke on the canvas, you don't see the result. When writing code, the difference between making a change and seeing the change can be anywhere from a minute or two to many hours, and this disconnect is highly detrimental to understanding the code you've just written."
