Presentation: Obie Fernandez on Agile DSL Development in Ruby
Sometimes, in more complex projects, a rift builds: the developers do their best to interpret the business logic the customer demands, but inevitably fail to bridge that gap. It's a solid bet that most InfoQ readers will have experienced this in some format or another in their work life. As always with Ruby, there is another way. Domain Specific Languages - DSLs - provide the backdrop to create business focused syntax that better matches customer needs.
To help you get to grips with creating your own DSL, Obie Fernandez (InfoQ's lead Ruby editor) shows you how to build a draft DSL implemented via Test Driven Development in our exclusive presentation from the JAOO conference in Denmark, which is a top tier yearly developer conference.
Re: Nice talk
Is there a full soft copy of the sides somewhere so I can manually go from slide to slide and get the full content?
Is it possible some of the slides are removed for confidentiality reasons? Even if this is the case some of the missing slides do not fall into that category, e.g. the favs xml.
There is a better way to record presenations
And FYI they are going to RubyConf 2007, so if you can't make it they will have the video for free under the creative-commons license.
