CS691F Programming Languages

| Introduction | Logistics | Policies | Schedule | Software | Acknowledgements |



This course has no formal prerequites. We expect you have mathematical maturity and that you're comfortable programming. Most programming assignments will use (a tiny sliver of) OCaml, and the class will begin with an OCaml tutorial for students who aren't familiar with the language. Some assignments will require you to program in a few other esoteric programming languages. After all, this is a PL course.


There is no required textbook. But, you're responsible for reading the content of the course Web site and for reading all messages posted to the mailing list. These messages will occasional point you to reading material.
