The citizen programming community is getting really vibrant. This will translates to users in organisations. Compiled languages are machine codes and cannot be easily viewed by users if there is an error or bug. You will need to setup the development environment. For interpreted programming, you can self service to read the erroneous codes without the need of complex development environment.
