A Language Odyssey (Part 1)

Miscellaneous

As a programmer, I often find myself succumbing to the allure of algorithms. There’s nothing quite like expanding your mental horizon by learning a new concept or pattern.

Some of the most powerful and elegant algorithms are the ones used in language translation. This is the same process your compiler uses to translate a human-readable programming language into machine code. You can learn to harness these same algorithms to create your own domain-specific language.
