This month Ash Moran will be giving a talk called Parsing for Fun & Profit – Building a Syntax Highlighter for Ruby in Ruby.

What’s the Deal?

Parsers aren’t just useful for building compilers and interpreters. They can also come in handy for much simpler applications, e.g. transforming data structures, calculating metrics or minifying code. During this talk, Ash will guide us through the process of building a syntax highlighter for Ruby, in Ruby! He’ll show us how to:

  • Define the syntax for a simple subset of Ruby
  • Write a grammar file in Treetop one rule at a time (doing it TDD with RSpec, of course)
  • Walk the data structure constructed by the Treetop parser
  • Transform this syntax tree into HTML, to be syntax highlighted with CSS

About the Speaker

Ash Moran is a freelance software developer & agile coach based in Manchester, and owner ofPatchSpace Ltd. He has been using Ruby for many years, and has yet to find another language that makes writing high quality software so much fun.

As always, all are welcome; whether you’re a Ruby pro or a complete noob.

18th October – Rails 4 Streaming with Sławomir Wdówka

This month we have Sławomir Wdówka giving us a talk on Rails 4 Streaming, with refreshments kindly sponsored by Fatsoma. We’re also running a drop-in session for people looking for help with their Ruby/Rails code. All levels welcome!

Whats the Deal?

A few months ago, Aaron Patterson introduced us to a new feature in the upcoming Rails 4, Live Streaming. This month, Sławomir Wdówka from Fatsoma will be giving us the low down on this new feature!

This month we’ll also be holding a Ruby/Rails advice drop-in session before the main talk. If you are new to Ruby or Rails, or maybe you’re just having a problem with a particular bit of code, drop in at MadLab from 6pm for help and advice from some seasoned Ruby developers.

Anyone is welcome to come join us, whether you are a Ruby pro, a complete noob, or, shock horror, you don’t program ruby!

Schedule

  • 6:00pm :: Ruby/Rails Advice Drop-in Session – All levels welcome.
  • 7:00pm :: Rails 4 Streaming by Sławomir Wdówka
  • 7:30pm :: Q&A
