This month we have a talk on "ANTLR: Another Tool for Language
Recognition" from Jeffrey Best.
"Jeff will be talking about his experiences with ANTLR4, creating a
small, domain-specific expression language for a Java application. There
will be a real example, rather than a lot of theory on lexical analysis,
grammars or parsing, but he will run through the basics of defining a
lexer and a grammar, show the simple statements required to build a
parse tree and the benefits of using listener methods, over visitors, to
handle evaluation as ANTLR4 walks the parse tree. He will demonstrate
adding ANTLR4 to your Java Maven project, how to generate the lexer and
grammar source code from your definitions and how to extend the base
listener class with your own implementations."
Sandwiches, tech talk and excellent company guaranteed as usual, of course.
I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
