Spreadsheets are often dismissed by developers for not being “proper programming” but that is not true: Spreadsheets are code. After all, spreadsheets are ‘live’ and functional, so they have everything going for them. Furthermore they are very fit for TDD and rapid prototyping.

As such, spreadsheet users are in need of something like an “IDE” which Felienne has tried to address. Tools for refactoring and testing can help spreadsheet users to build, maintain and test.
