Bootstrapping a Language by Aaron Bedra

Creating a programming language is something every programmer should try at some point in their career. Join Aaron as he walks you through implementing a simple version of Scheme using the Ruby programming language. He will draw on some of the ideas from Peter Norvig, Gerald and Julie Sussman, and Hal Abelson. You will learn how a language works at it's core and walk away with your very own version of Scheme to experiment on to your hearts content.
