I'm planning to write a nice little series of posts about building a compiler including the design of a simple language. Anyone interested in this topic?

@apfohl if it will be easy to follow and does not require a degree in computer science i'm interested 😀

@aslmx The compiler will be written in C and compiles the self defined language to an x86_64 binary. So the reader needs to know a little bit about C, pointers and simple data structures like lists.

@apfohl i have a basic knowledge and understanding of software engineering - but no advanced knowledge of algorithms. So anything beyond Quicksort is magic 😜
