CS Course Spotlight: Comp 150PLD
Creating a new programming language requires designers to draw on a wide range of skills: theory to ensure their creation has a well-defined semantics, engineering to ensure they produce an efficient implementation, and aesthetics to ensure the whole is coherent and pleasing to programmers. In this class, we will study the principles and tools that underlie programming language design. We will consider both general-purpose languages, which are languages intended for almost any programming task, and domain-specific languages, which are languages focused on specific tasks. The class will be a combination of lectures and seminar-style discussions about selected academic papers. Students will use the knowledge they acquire to design and implement their own domain-specific programming language.https://www.cs.tufts.edu/t/courses/description/undergraduate
Prerequisite: Comp 40 and Comp 105.
The GIFT program, Graduate Institute for Teaching (https://asegrad.tufts.edu/academics/professional-development/graduate-institute-teaching-gift), gives graduate students at Tufts the chance to teach a few sessions of a full University-level course.
