He tried Microsoft's Logo-like Steve-bot and whilst it was very easy to use, like any imperative approach, composition was difficult to achieve. However, using Haskell, functions, Monoids and a prudent use of lenses, a remarkably simple domain-specific language (DSL) can be built that achieves composition. With composition, it is possible to generate some very complex structures and Tim started with castles! This talk will briefly describe the DSL and generate some structures in-game with a live demo.
