Joe O'Brien, of the Columbus Ruby Brigade and EdgeCase, will be in Ann Arbor this week. He's presenting a talk at the Ann Arbor Computer Society – "Domain Specific Languages: Molding Ruby". A summary appears below.
"Ever wondered what all the fuss is about when it comes to DSL's and Ruby? It seems to be all we hear about. This talk will peel away the onion and look at what it is about Ruby that makes it the perfect candidate for creating your own languages. I will show you, through examples, how you can create your own languages without the need for compilers and parsers. We will also cover some real world examples in areas of Banking and Medicine where DSL's have been applied."
Joe spoke at AACS about a year ago, and I was lucky enough to attend. His talks are always interesting. If you can attend, I definitely recommend it.
