The paper discusses some trends in end user programming (EUP) and takes inspiration from the discussions in a panel and in a vertical session on research evaluation within the second Search Computing workshop. We discuss the controversial successes and failures in this field and we elaborate on which facilities could foster adoption of end user programming. We discuss various dimensions of end user programming, including vertical versus horizontal language definition, declarative versus imperative approaches. We exemplify our discussion in the realistic scenario of research evaluation by comparing the Search Computing and ResEval approaches.
