Abstract

We report an empirical study of nonprogrammers who built a database-centered web application using an end-user web development tool. Half of the users spent time planning their project by creating a concept map before starting the programming; across planning conditions, half of the users were males and half female. Participants who did concept mapping or who were male were more attracted to database programming; however planning did not affect feelings of success and in general females felt more successful than males. We discuss the implications of these findings for work on gender and for future EUP tools and training.
