Traditionally, writing parsers has been hard, involving arcane tools like Lex and Yacc. An alternative approach is to write a parser in your favourite programming language, using a "parser combinator" library and concepts no more complicated than regular expressions.
In this talk, you will explore a deep dive into parser combinators. You will learn how to build a parser combinator library from scratch in F# using functional programming techniques, and then use it to implement a full featured JSON parser.
