Domain Specific Languages
Domain Specific Languages or DSLs are languages that target a specfic kind of problem or domain. We've had various degree of success with DSLs, over the past several years, in narrow areas. However, DSLs are not widely used in general purpose application partly because the popular widely used languages today do not make it easy.
In this presentation we will introduce DSLs, delve into their benefits. We will look at a number of examples as to how we can utilize them for common application tasks. We will take a look at what language developments, tools, and techniques are in the horizon that could bring this to common place.
