Early Access Release of Leah Hanson's "Static Analysis" Chapter

Michael DiBernardo - Tue 22 September 2015 -

Today we've published the fourth chapter in our early access release for 500 Lines. The chapter was written by Leah Hanson.

Many programmers treat their programming language implementations as black boxes. Static analysis tools or language analysis tools can seem indistinguishable from magic, and good treatments of these topics have been buried deep in academic curricula that few of us make time for.

In our opinion, Leah has done a terrific job of demystifying the nature of the techniques used in static analysis and introspection in her chapter. While her work is specific to Julia, the lessons learned are applicable in other languages. Enjoy!

We'd also like to take this opportunity to remind our readers that this book would not have been possible without the financial support of PagerDuty. Please take this opportunity to let them know if you've found this work useful.

Enjoy!
