LOP-ing Off Language-Oriented Programming
July 27, 2007 § Leave a Comment
I’ve been fascinated by Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) and metaprogramming for a while (particularly in Ruby), but just encountered the larger concept of Language-Oriented Programming (LOP). As someone who’s been an OOP weenie since the late 1980′s, I am intrigued by the question whether LOP and Language-Driven Development (LDD) will prove to be a similarly transformational paradigm.
As usual, once I discover something “new” it turns out people quicker than me have already been talking about it for years. Still, there’s probably people slower than me who haven’t heard of it yet, so for them I’ve collected some of the more useful resources below. Enjoy!
