Course Summary

Why to enroll this course?

About this course: 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.

The course is divided into three Coursera courses: Part A, Part B, and Part C.

As explained in more detail in the first module of Part A, the overall course is a substantial amount of challenging material, so the three-part format provides two intermediate milestones and opportunities for a pause before continuing.
