Code Mash 2007 – Domain Specific Languages (KeyNote)

This keynote was by Neil Ford over at ThoughtWorks. I remember a few of his talks before over at No Fluff, Just Stuff (Java Conference). His talk was mainly about Domain Specific Languages (DSL).

While I have not heard the term or acronym before I have heard it by other names, Meta-Programming, Model Driven Architecture, Code Generation, etc., though his talk went deeper than some of those previously known topics.

Here’s a cool PDF he showing The History of Programming Languages (OReilly) . It shows all the languages through time in a nice graph.
