Paradigms of Computer Programming - Abstraction and Concurrency


This course covers data abstraction, state, and deterministic dataflow in a unified framework with practical code exercises. An open online course (MOOC) from Ecole Polytechnique de Louvain.

What you'll learn

This course follows the first part (Fundamentals). Together, they give an introduction to all major programming concepts, techniques, and paradigms in a unified framework. We cover the three main programming paradigms: functional, object-oriented, and declarative dataflow.

The two courses are targeted toward people with a basic knowledge of programming. It will be most useful to beginning programming students, but the unconventional approach should be insightful even to seasoned professionals.

Louv1.1x covers fundamental concepts. You’ll learn functional programming, its techniques and its data structures. You’ll use simple formal semantics for all concepts, and see those concepts illustrated with practical code that runs on the accompanying open-source platform, the Mozart Programming System.

Louv1.2x covers data abstraction, state, and concurrency. You’ll learn the four ways to do data abstraction and discuss the trade-offs between objects and abstract data types. You’ll be exposed to deterministic dataflow, the most useful paradigm for concurrent programming, and learn how it avoids race conditions.

How you'll learn

This course in entirely online and organized several times a year. Some sessions even let you learn totally at your own pace (no deadlines). The course is open ton anyone interested without administrative registration at university nor entrance fee.

You'll learn through short videos from the professor, programming exercices and quizzes, questions and answers with the course team...
