[profession,quote] Metaphysical

In this tutorial we will use the Meta Programming System (MPS) to create a 'meta' Hello World language that you can use to create various kinds of Hello World programs.

With all due respect, this introductory example takes Hello World stupidity to a completely new level. And it just comes absolutely nowhere in the end, which is a pity.

I am sorry such a breakthrough concept gets such a shitty illustration from the very company that is implementing it. Why oh why JetBrains people could not be as creative as Martin Fowler in his metaprogramming exercise?
