Details

As you read this sentence, your mind identifies the words, punctuation,
and the boundaries of the sentence. Good job - your internal parser is
working well.

To write your own languages, you'll need a parser - whether it's a full-fledged Turing complete language, or just a tiny special-purpose Domain Specific Language (DSL). Even if you don't, insight into how code is parsed helps you know and love your programming language better.

DDL is a group for discussion of technology and techniques related to dynamic programming languages: Python, Perl, Ruby, PHP, JavaScript, and sometimes something more exotic! These languages are fun and easy to get started with, yet powerful enough for all manner of professional use, and our members span the full range of experience with them.

We always leave time for general conversation and questions. Come try one of the most interactive groups around!

The Dayton Dynamic Languages User Group meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Brixx Ice Co. from 7 to 9 PM. We are a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Dayton Microcomputer Association. http://d8ndl.org
