I work on Oslo.

Oslo is so smokin' hot. I can't wait to talk more about it after PDC next week.

In the mean time, I'll ramble on...

I've been reading about parser combinators today. It's like building a set of mini-parsing functions into 1 big gigantic function. I don't get why that makes life easier. I still have to write the mini-parsing functions.

It still looks like a cool thing right now - at least in a language like ML or Scala (both of which I'm still learning). But I think that's  because they support algebraic types and pattern matching directly in the language. 

I hope to find time to actually build a small example here shortly. We'll see how it goes.
