If you're a web developer, you're likely working with multiple compilers every day... perhaps without realizing it.
These compilers enable you to work with programming languages at higher levels of abstraction, which means you can write code more expressively. This results in higher productivity.
No more 1's and 0's or

Compilers for Humans seeks to show you that compilers aren't magic, nor are they esoteric tools that only geniuses understand. At their core, compilers consist of a handful of steps that might have intimidating names:
- Tokenization, or lexical analysis
- Abstract Syntax Tree construction, or syntactic analysis
- Code generation
Compilers for Humans will show you how each of these steps work with practical examples you can use today in your web development workflows.
Right now, we're working on a draft, and would love to share the early versions of this course with you. If you enter your email below, we will send you modules via email, for free, as the draft progresses.
