Relationship to Student Outcomes
No student outcomes specified.
Course Learning Outcomes. Students will:

1. Build reusable components.

2. Use tools for integrating features into the language syntax.

3. Write programs in the functional style and describe the advantage of that approach.

4. Analyze and describe (using O-notation) the execution time and space consumption of simple programs.

5. Make informed implementation decisions based on performance tradeoffs

6. Build components using inheritance and interfaces.

7. Compare programming languages along dimensions such as static or dynamic typing, automatic or manual garbage collection, and implicit or explicit concurrency.

Prerequisites by Topic
  • ability to write programs in Python using libraries.
Lecture Topics:

*Functions: lambdas, generators, recursion, and functional programming. * Classes: operator overloading, (iterator) protocols, inheritance, and self- referential classes. * Computer Science: EBNF//regular expressions, decorators, unit-testing, analysis of algorithms, and (Java and) static typing.
