The Scala and FPL friendly event in Paris!

October 24th and 25th, 2013. Paris, France

Write you a Lisp in Scala

Learn how to build an external DSL (Domain Specific Languages). When used judiciously a DSL offers advantages like expressivity, higher level of abstraction, simplified development. In this talk, we’ll look at implementing a mini language. By way of code examples, we’ll show how to incrementally build a Lisp dialect on top of Scala:

  • Parsing code with combinator parsers
  • Defining datatypes and functions
  • Evaluating expressions
  • Implementing Higher order functions

By the end of the talk, you’ll know to use (and abuse) DSLs.
