The Most Fundamental Idea In Programming

A session at Clojure eXchange 2013

Friday 6th December, 2013

1:45pm to 2:30pm (GMT)

To everyone's great surprise, writing a programming language isn't that hard. There's a vast amount of work involved in getting it to production-standard, but the core ideas are pleasingly simple.

In this talk you'll learn how to throw together a programming language in a couple of lunchtime hack-sessions. One that's simple, yet has features still missing in many modern languages.

It'll expand your mind, improve your appreciation of the languages you use everyday, and let you explore what has been rightly called, "The Most Fundamental Idea In Programming."
