[As described below, this is Part C of a 3–part course. Participants should complete Parts A and B first Part C “dives right in” and refers often to material from Part A and Part B.] This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of programming languages, with a strong emphasis on functional programming. The course uses the languages ML, Racket, and Ruby as vehicles for teaching the concepts, but the real intent is to teach enough about how any language “fits together” to make you more effective programming in any language and in learning new ones. This course is neither particularly theoretical nor just about programming specifics it will give you a framework for understanding how to use language constructs effectively and how to design correct and elegant programs. By using different languages, you will learn to think more deeply than in terms of the particular syntax of one language. The emphasis on functional programming is essential for learning how to write robust, reusable, composable, and elegant programs. Indeed, many of the most important ideas in modern languages have their roots in functional programming. Get ready to learn a fresh and beautiful way to look at software and …

    As far as I know this is the best series of courses that covers the major programming paradigms and the most valuable idioms that emerge from the different traits of these paradigms. I strongly recommend it to everyone studying computer science!

    Clear and refreshing. Especially the part comparing OOP with FP. They way to compare subtyping and generics is also novel. I have been writing OOP and FP programs for years but haven’t look at them from such a point of view.

    Part C ends the story, and if you liked Part A and Part B, there is no reason to not complete your journey with this course. It has the same great teaching style but now talks about OOP and contrasts it with functional programming. The three parts together form a wonderfull learning experience back from the early times where enthusiastic profs recorded lectures themselfes to spread the world about there subject.

    The best teacher I’ve had chance to listen to. I’ve completed his corse on programming languages several years ago but always like to return and listen again. It’s two things like good movie one can always return to and learn something new, or learn how to be a good teacher, and as Dan says: painting that fence. 🙂

    Courses I’ve taken on programming languages often focus on one language. You learn the different concepts for that one language but don’t understand why the language chose those concepts and what the alternatives are. By covering three languages, this course integrates the concepts and their alternatives to give you a solid understanding of how languages work.

    This is an Absolutely Great Course. One of those rare ones where you feel that each of your smallest efforts brings you a step higher. Dan explains in a very clear and precise way all those concepts that an inexperienced programmer is usually afraid of: function closures, type inference, virtual methods and many more. I definitely recommend all the 3 parts to anyone who wants to call himself a programmer. Thank you Dan!

    The whole series of courses (parts A, B and C) are must take for anyone learning software engineering through moocs. Dan is one of the best teachers I’ve seen to give such clarity of concepts through recorded video lectures is very impressive. I already recommended these courses and will continue to do so. Thanks! Specifically about C part I really liked the functional languages (especially I am into lisp like syntax, very intrigued about other similar functional languages (clojure)) but this course gives a very nice contrast between functional and oop styles as well as deeper understanding of the oop approach to program decomposition for a person that has to write code on a daily basis, but has no software engineering training.

    Much to be gained with this course through learning language features with a high degree of precision around their semantics. Challenging enough to provide a real sense of accomplishment upon completion. Carefully constructed course materials.

    Part C of this course was harder because there were three languages to keep in mind and remember properties of! But it’s nice to have been exposed to all the different decisions that go into creating a programming language.

    Finally, wrapped it all up with Ruby, OOP and other great topics. The homeworks, especially the Tetris one were really fun. A great finale to parts B and C with a pretty challenging final exam. I counted: the reading notes together for parts A, B and C are 180 pages. What a journey! Thanks for sharing this course Dan!

    This course was difficult, rewarding and fun at the same time. It took me a while to complete it, and I noticed that even after a while I did not forget the core idea. This is due to the great content of the course. Also, the passion of Dan is inspiring. In conclusion, if you’re interested in software development, take this course.

    Excellent set of courses. I love Dr. Grossmans’s enthusiasm on the topic. I feel the material is very practical, and applicable to my career in full stack web development. It’s immensely helpful having access to this material as I am not classically trained in computer science. I feel more confident navigating the turbulent world of Javascript, and continuously exploring additional languages, and idioms. The rigorous nature of the course is initially off putting as a busy professional doing the course part time, but the results are extremely rewarding. I encourage all interested in development to at least check out some of the videos on this course for a deeper understanding of the tools we use everyday.

    Great material in the last part of a great course. Section 10 in particular was challenging and fascinating, and I learned a lot about type systems. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about the foundations of programming languages in a broad context. This course really bolstered my understanding of programming language theory.
