This technical talk, presented for several audiences in 2017, introduces the concept of "domain-specific languages" to a non-specialist audience.
We discuss the general idea of "notation as a tool for thought", and introduce an actual commercial project as case study, in which a custom domain-specific language adds critically-required flexibility to an economic evaluation system, at a low cost in complexity.
Unfortunately, no recording is available, but slides and example program code are freely available on GitHub.
This short talk, presented here as an interactive slide deck with audio narration, attempts to deconstruct the state of data science in the oil and gas industry circa 2015.
We also present a few bits of advice for data science practitioners working in the industry.
