Introduction to Translators & Domain Specific Languages (DSL)
Have you wondered how computers manage to take our source files and work their magic to produce wonderful (or not so wonderful) results? Ever wish you could clearly and concisely express your intentions in a computer language that makes sense to you and your customers? If so, you will want to attend this Meetup.
The presentation offers an introduction to the mechanics of language parsing with plenty of real-world examples and demonstrations. There will be lots of take-away resources for attendees regardless of their language of choice.
Don't worry, you won't need a computer science degree and we'll take it nice and easy. Think of this evening as Language Translation for Mere Mortals. However, this is not a light-weight fluffy talk. You will walk away with a deeper understanding of computer languages and some wickedly awesome tools including a full-featured expression parser and language toolkit to build your own domain specific languages.
Ralph is a Principal Developer at Follett Software Company with over 30 years of experience developing commercial software applications using a variety of languages and frameworks. He likes to create tools to make developing software more enjoyable and dabbling with parsers, electronics, and embedded microcontrollers. His mantra is, "Don't annoy your customers".
