Happy new year all! New meeting coming up for LambdaLounge:
Hey all,

Hope you can join us for our first talk of 2022 - we have Nicolas Rinaudo
speaking about Scala DSLs. Please sign up at
so we know you're coming!

Working with domain experts can be frustrating for all parties involved -
it’s very hard for them to get the subtle nuances of their craft across,
and aggravating for developers to constantly tweak and refine code to
reflect ever evolving specifications.

There is, fortunately, a solution: Domain Specific Languages, small, highly
specialised languages that allow experts to write exactly what they mean,
without needing to involve developers for each new tweak.

These DSLs can be a lot of fun to use and write, but are also easy to get
wrong. The purpose of this talk is to walk through a slightly simplified
version of a language currently used in production to process millions of
documents, show the most common problems that need to be solved, and offer
reasonable, easy to understand solutions.

At the end of the talk, attendants will have a solid understanding of how
to design their own DSLs, and of the strengths of weaknesses of their
standard encoding.

Conor (on behalf of the LL organisers)
