If you are fascinated by programming languages, if they are more than just a tool, whether you design them, compile or interpret them, analyze, optimize or measure them – this podcast is for you.
Hosted by Darius Blasband and Jan Vitek, each episode features an interview with a guest from the field of compiler technology. We focus on people with the particular mindset it takes to work on language technologies, a mindset wired to think about programs as abstract objects to be studied, manipulated and transformed, and languages and compilers as playgrounds of the creative mind.
We stay away from the technicalities that have been described extensively in separately published material.
Instead, we interview language designers, past and current, compiler writers, tool developers, educators, researchers, the famous as well as the confidential, but always with a story to tell, always with a fresh perspective. They share ideas, motivations, ambitions and even frustrations.
Our community is made of passionate people, with strong and sometimes conflicting opinions, but conversations remain civil even when we disagree on most things. This is about confronting ideas, not about winning an argument.
So join us for inspiring conversations with inspiring people.
After all, it’s in the title.
We speak your language.
