LinuxFest Northwest 2015: Bootstrapping a Language Workbench
Have you ever wanted a programming language specifically for the application you were developing? This is the promise of Domain Specific Languages(DSLs). Unfortunately, the time and cost to build translators and support tools have prevented the construction of these new languages. A Language Workbench reduces the effort to create a DSL tailored for a narrow set of applications.
This presentation chronicles our efforts to bootstrap a language workbench called Language of Languages and create a minimal viable open source offering.
