Domain Specific Languages

There’s a great article over on Martin Fowler’s blog about domain specific languages (DSL), and something new called a Language Workbench. The language workbench stuff is pretty darn interesting, but the first half of the article worth reading by itself for a very good introduction to “language centric programming” with DSL’s.

This is that stuff that lisp guys rant on-and-on endlessly about, but I think Martin’s done a better job explaining why it’s cool than anyone I’ve seen before. Well worth reading.
