For the last five years I have been test driving pretty much all the code I have written. This is a retrospective on why it took so long to get started, where I see the greatest benefits and where it is still hard.
The fear of releasing is real, it is the fear of failure.
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?
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.
Have you ever come across a poorly written software where you thought to yourself — this has grown out of control!
