HIGHLIGHT A Domain Specific Language lets you express the intent of a piece of code in more human-readable terms. Boo is an ideal language to create DSLs for .NET. DESCRIPTION Even good code can be tough to understand when you simply read it even if you're a developer and you know what it does! A Domain Specific Language (DSL) helps a developer clearly express the intent of the code, and thus make it easier to work on the core business problem. Developers who migrate to Ruby from Java love Boo's ability to define a DSL for .NET in a just few lines of code. In Boo, the developer can define simple DSLs for .NET applications without suffering through the awkward XML usually required. Building Domain Specific Languages in Boo shows how to write DSLs for .NET. It starts by teaching what a DSL is. Then, it provides a fast-paced Boo tutorial. Readers immediately start putting this handy language to productive use as they learn how to implement DSLs in real code. The author shows how to create several types of DSLs, all with the goal of making the developer more productive. Along the way, readers learn the Boo they need techniques to scare away the evil XML. KEY POINTS Author Ayende Rahien is world-famous as a speaker and blogger on this topic This book covers both the theory and the practice of building DSLs This is the only book available that teaches Boo MARKET INFORMATION Anything that makes coding faster and better is of interest to developers. Writing DSLs has the potential to improve both speed of development and quality of code! This approach is unique, in that it brings a common technique for Ruby and Java developers to the .NET platform.
