A thorough technical lead with a passion for producing valuable and clean code. Tends to occasionally blog about building software and can't seem to make up his mind on which programming language to use next.
What is technical debt, who owns it and when is it due? Post #2 in a series of post about obstacles around software development.
Why do we have obstacles in software development when software is almost free from constraints?
Writing clear, consice and maintainable tests can be quite challenging regardless of tool and language. Following the practices discussed here will hopefully help you achieve this if you are using ScalaTest.
Now that we have defined what we want the Sequence language to look like, we need to formalize this in a grammar and then build a parser to parse our input into an Abstract Syntax Tree
Even a tiny language as Sequnce requires a careful and iterative process, you need to consider both the semantics and the synatax.
The need for different types of computer languages is growing rapidly — luckily it turns out that creating your own Domain Specific Language does not have to be all that hard.
