The Sydney Java Users Group (SJUG) has organised this lecture:
“Our speaker is Terence Parr, a professor of computer science and
graduate program director at the University of San Francisco where he
builds programming language tools such as ANTLR and StringTemplate.
Terence has consulted for and held various technical positions at
companies such as IBM, Lockheed Missiles and Space, NeXT, and Renault
Automation. Terence holds a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from
Purdue University and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Army High-
Performance Computing Research Center at the University of Minnesota
where he built parallelizing FORTRAN source-to-source translators.
ANTLR is a popular public domain parser generator built in Java.
ANTLR is used internally by many open source projects including
Hibernate, JBoss, Checkstyle and many more. It is also used in many
commercial tools such as IntelliJ IDEA, Clover, Fisheye, BEA/
Weblogic, Apples iWeb, Tivoli and others.
Terence will give a brief introduction to ANTLR and the new features
in the recently released v3. He’ll then demonstrate ANTLR’s ease of
use in solving common parsing problems, including processing config
file formats, designing and parsing DSLs, and processing/translating
programming language source files. He’ll also demonstrate ANTLRWorks,
a sophisticated GUI development environment for writing and debugging
ANTLR grammars.”
