Talking ’bout Code Generation

In a perfect display of self-promotion, I forgot to announce here that I had a presentation proposal accepted for the ACCU Conference 2008. To get an idea of what I talked about you can read the proposal and browse through my slides.

Basically I expressed the view that code generators are a very effective means of dealing with the kind of repetitive tasks that tend to crop up when programming, especially if you use effective tools such as Python as programming language, a parser generator such as PLY for information acquisition and a templating engine such as Cheetah for the actual generation.
