A seven-week course in programming languages for first-year students

10 octobre 2013

Résumé: Programming languages are to computation what languages are to thought: a notation to represent elements in a language of discourse. The goal of this talk is to present the author's solution to the open-ended puzzle of teaching programming languages to first-year students. This solution mixes a knowledge of the subject, a knowledge of the context of the course, and a knowledge of its target audience.
