Next ACCU Monthly Meeting
Silicon Valley Chapter
Tuesday, October 11, 2005 7:00pm
Speaker: Jack Herrington
Topic: The State of Code Generation
Code generation is the technique of building code using programs. These programs can range from very small helper scripts, to grand creations that turn abstract models of business logic into complete applications. The output of the generator is code that an engineer would otherwise have to write by hand. On the pro side code generation has the ability to provide an amazing benefit to engineering in a brief period of time. In the opposite direction a number of engineers have been stung by code generation and consider it a design smell.
Jack Herrington is a programmer at Leverage Software. He is the author of "Code Generation in Action" (Manning, July 2003) and "Podcasting Hacks" (O'Reilly, July 2005). He is the editor of the Code Generation Network and Bound Cast.
