When designing software, developers often need to solve numerous instances of a single problem. Examples include writing business rules engine, detecting patterns in changing prices and many others. Domain specific languages (DSLs) provide a powerful mechanism for solving such problems – by designing a single composable library (or a language), we get a tool that can be used to solve a number of instances of the same problem.
