RacketWeek / How To Design Languages starts in 8 minutes and I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED

This will be an update thread I guess!

Introductions done! Lots of cool people here.

I was typically too verbose in my self-introduction, oops

Language Oriented Programming section now starting


core idea: most languages are multiple languages, composed

some of the examples of DSLs embedded in languages commonly:

- string based formatters, inside of strings
- string based regexes, inside of strings
- pattern matchers

Though DSLs embedded in strings aren't very composable and can't do interesting things at compile time
