Programming Languages, Part B

Por: Coursera . en: , ,

  • Introduction, Course-Wide Information, and Software Installation (Start Here)
    • Welcome! Start here! Learn about this course and how it's organized.
  • Section 5 and Homework 4 (First Module with Racket)
    • Let's get started programming with Racket and then learning idioms related to delaying evaluation. The welcome message has a few additional comments about picking up a new language and how to approach the homework assignment, so let's get started...
  • Section 6 and Homework 5 (Second Module with Racket)
    • Welcome to the second week of Part B where we will focus on (a) building data structures in dynamically typed languages and (b) implementing programming languages with interpreters. Most of the programming assignment is focused on (b) -- implementing a small programming language that has function closures. As usual, start with the welcome message and enjoy!
  • Section 7 Including a Quiz
    • In the last module of Part B we will use our experience programming in ML and Racket to
      compare and contrast static typing and dynamic typing. This is not only the most important difference between these two languages, but it is a fundamental topic in the study of programming languages. Learning it can help you program more effectively in both kinds of languages. After completing this week's quiz, don't forget to watch the Part B Wrap-Up and Part C Preview video.
