Parse transformations is one of those techniques that is generally either loved or hated. They are a fantastic weapon but used carelessly can shoot you in the foot. But the only way to learn using such weapons carefully is to master them first.
An explanation of mechanics will be given, and some tricks & libraries that simplify the whole job of writing parse transformations will be shown. A few existing parse transformations (such as SeqBind and Exportie) will be explained and some other usage ideas will be discussed.
Talk objective: To provide a starting point on using parse transformations, a scarcely documented subject.
