Write your own compiler in 24 hours

Write your own compiler in 24 hours by Phil Trelford (@ptrelford) Compiler writers are often seen as the stuff of myth and legend. In this session we'll step behind the proverbial curtain and reveal how compilers actually work. Expect plenty of live code samples, primarily in F#, covering language design and parsing, all-the-way through to emitting code. This session is aimed as a primer for those interested in writing an external DSL, general purpose language or just understanding how these things work. http://www.meetup.com/Norfolk-Developers-NorDev/events/205707742/
