Online Apps for Live Code Tutorials/Demos

With Dev8D coming up, here’s a quick round-up/reminder of some tools/techniques for hacking around with code via a browser, or running interactive coding presentations in a browser…

And if your presentation includes visits to websites, remember to share the URL via a SplashURL bookmarklet (developed at Dev8D last year; SplashURL screencast.)

PS if you know of any other apps in a similar vein, or links to videos showing really effective ways of presenting code, please add a comment below.

HTML5 presentation in HTML5

PPS On the notion of live docs/literate programming, see also:
– Wolfram computable document format (?)

PPPS seems someone is “monetising” interactive coding tutorials… Codecademy

PPPPS sort of related to CDF, the notion of ‘active readers and reactive documents‘ eg as implemented using Tangle Javascript Library

PPPPPS R in the cloud – eg RStudio runs as a cross platform desktop client but can also run as a web service; services such as CloudStat and Jeroen Oom’s hosted ggplot app.
