Compiler Writing for Dummies – Darren Snodgrass

An introduction to the concepts involved in writing a compiler. The presentation will demonstrate how to write a Pascal compiler in Pascal (no, it isn’t as stupid as it sounds). The presenter has had a vast amount of experience in compiler writing. Well, actually, he has just done one. And most of that was plagiarised. And he can’t remember most of what he did anyway. But apart from that, it will be an interesting, if not somewhat superficial, presentation.
