Programming and Scaling

tele-TASK Video: Programming and Scaling.

If you’ve heard me talk about DSLs but just haven’t quite been sold on the idea yet, watch this video. In fact, watch it anyway. Dr. Alan Kay gives a very inspirational and interesting speech about the past, present and future of Computer Science, technological innovation and creativity. The grand finale ties all of his ideas together in a beautiful example of the power of domain specific languages.

I found myself nodding throughout this entire presentation and even though I didn’t know where it was going I could see how it applied to my own personal research in meta#. Thank you Dr. Kay, I may never need to spend my time explaining the why’s of DSLs again, I will simply forward them to this presentation.
