Talk: Programmation en Logique


Prolog is one of the most underrated programming languages around; possibly because of its strange syntax and the unusual paradigm. But it is a very nice special-purpose programming language. In this talk, I introduce Prolog’s programming model, showcase some programming domains in which Prolog allows for very concise, elegant programs, and finally describe how it can also be used as a general-purpose tool.




core.logic edition

At :clojureD 2020, I gave a version of this talk that uses core.logic instead of Prolog.

This talk, given by Lars Hupel, was a super fun look at Prolog, a logical programming language developed in the 70s. […] Lars did a really great job of demonstrating Prolog’s uniqueness! – Notes from BOB2019 Konferenz
