Talk: Language Development with Jetbrains MPS
The Business Informatics Group together with the Faculty of Informatics invites to a talk of Dr. Markus Völter, Independent consultant for language engineering
TU Wien, Campus Karlsplatz
Hörsaal 13 Ernst Melan
1040 Vienna, Karlsplatz 13
Jetbrains MPS is an open source language workbench that supports the development
and use of domain-specific languages. What separates MPS from other language development
tools is its support for multiple different notational styles (text, tables, math, diagrams)
and its support for modular language composition. MPS is used in domains such as finance,
healthcare, automotive and aerospace to develop real-world DSLs. This lecture is an introduction
to MPS based on a concrete example DSL. I will demonstrate aspects of the development of two
cooperating languages, a generator to Java, and interpreter directly in the IDE, language
composition by embedding a functional programming language as well as tabular and graphical notations.
The example code is available on github so participants can continue to explore MPS after the lecture:
Markus Voelter works as a language engineer, bridging the gap from industry and business
domains to software systems. He analyses domains, designs languages and analyses, implements
IDEs and architects reliable backends based on interpreters and generators. For 20 years,
Markus has worked in a wide range of industries, including finance, automotive, health, science
and IT. He has published numerous papers in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, has written
several books and spoken at many industry conferences world-wide. Markus has a diploma in
technical physics from FH Ravensburg-Weingarten and a PhD in computer science from TU Delft.
