Thinking Specific with DSLs
Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) are springing up all over the place, and it's hard to engage with any software development framework without encountering some facets that could be considered under the DSL banner. This is no accident. Given the right mix of technology, convention, domain selection and, most importantly, audience consideration, a DSL can turn the most complicated and esoteric development headache into an expression that is simple (enough) to write, as straightforward to read as a cartoon and slips into the brain's memory and comprehension nodes like 100% proof vodka.
However evaluating and building your own DSLs is no mean feat. So, if you're in the business of writing clean code (go on, hands up, who isn't?!), creating world-class API's, or just love the ego trip of creating your own funky language then there'll be something in this talk for you.
In this talk, Russ Miles and Tareq Abedrabbo (co-creators of the new Deep Dive DSLs with Groovy course) will show how they apply DSL principles and practices effectively in order to build and evaluate real world DSLs to write the cleanest, expressive and most productive code possible for a given domain problem.
