  3. David de Hilster, Consulting Software Engineer, LexisNexis Risk Solutions Group - Watch Recording
    The ECL IDE goes multi-language - Computer languages that is!

    The ECL IDE is named such because it is the best interface for programming ECL on the planet. But in the last few years, other languages have sprung up around it that generate ECL and they are being used more and more by the HPCC community. In response to this shift, a new multi-language ECL IDE is to the rescue! DUDE, HIPIE, SALT, ESDL, and KEL are now recognized by the new ECL IDE and are starting to make juggling all these different type files much more visually intuitive and functionally seamless.

    David de Hilster is a consulting software engineer working on the development efforts of the ECL IDE component of the HPCC Systems platform. David has more than 20 years’ experience in research, design, programming, and bringing innovative ideas to the market place. David has developed numerous software designs including a resume processor, an online card room, and a Visual Studio-like environment for creating analyzers that process human language. Known for rapid prototyping, enthusiasm, creativity, and ability to communicate technical ideas to non-technical clients.
