Cultivating Developer-Centric DSLs

Writing boilerplate code can be draining. Breaking things out into classes and modules doesn't always make this process more enjoyable either. At Weedmaps, we've developed a suite of Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) for the vast majority of our workflows. This includes things like query objects all the way to crawlers. Done right, these tools allow team members to accomplish more with less. Done wrong, team members would have been better off writing everything from scratch. This talk is meant for those who want to build better tooling around repetitive workflows. It's also for those that want to better understand how some of these tools work under the hood. Embrace the magic!
