Introduction

Welcome to the home page of the Web Programming Research Team in Tampere University of Technology, Finland. Our research spans a broad range of topics from the foundations of web applications (as opposed to web pages or documents), mobile web applications and user interaction techniques to topics such as mashup development, client-server partitioning of web applications, and collaborative & context-aware web services and development tools. Here are some of our current and past public projects and activities in the area of web programming:

  • MDSWD - a project on multi-device SW project funded by Academy of Finland
  • LiquidIoT, XThings - collaboration projects with Nokia Technologies on Liquid Software and programmability of IoT devices
  • Liquid Software
  • Lively 3D
  • Lively for Qt
  • Lively Kernel

Check out our publications for further information.

Liquid Software

More recently, we have become interested in liquid software (in Finnish: liukkaat ohjelmistot) – an approach that allows applications and data to move seamlessly between multiple devices and screens, making it possible for the users to roam freely between the different computing devices that they have. We believe that in the future consumers will have a significantly larger number of internet-connected computing devices in their daily lives; liquid software will play a central role in enabling truly casual and effortless multiple device ownership.
