Seventh Software Craftsmanship Meeting

I am very excited to announce the 7th SCISR meetup.

How to utilize efficiently Programming Languages?

Lectures:

-Dynamic languages seem to be more concise and less verbose than their Static counterparts.

However, using Dynamic languages efficiently requires a different approach.

During the first part of our meeting Reuven Lerner will demonstrate the
differences between Dynamic and Static languages and present the right approaches to utilize the full power of a Dynamic language.

-While general purpose languages can solve any problem, the creation of special-purpose languages for expressing problems and solving a particular problem domain is highly efficient.

During the second part of our meeting Dror Helper will explain and demonstrate what are Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) and how they can be used to solve problems in a particular domain.

Hands On:

In the hands on part we will exercise writing DSLs.

Please bring your laptops (with the environments set-up) to the meeting.
