Abstract [en]

The paper is a reflective account of a successful five-year experience with a Web-based collaborative programming environment for nomadic student programmers. While after implementing the basic functionality there were good opportunities for collecting and providing awareness information within the tool, resources did not permit that. Still, the users appreciated the tool and inferred the needed awareness information or provided for it using other channels like instant messaging. This experience suggests that well-designed basic articulation is much more important than awareness for the success of collaborative tools.
