Norfolk Developers: Write your own compiler in 24 hours (F#)
When: Wednesday 7 January 2015 @ 6.30pm
Where: The King's Centre, King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH
Compiler writers are often seen as the stuff of myth and legend.
In this session we'll step behind the proverbial curtain and reveal how compilers actually work.
Expect plenty of live code samples, primarily in F#, covering language design and parsing, all-the-way through to emitting code. This session is aimed as a primer for those interested in writing an external DSL, general purpose language or just understanding how these things work.
