PRODUCT INFORMATION

Description

A textbook that uses a hands-on approach to teach principles of programming languages, with Java as the implementation language. This introductory textbook uses a hands-on approach to teach the principles of programming languages. Using Java as the implementation language, Rajan covers a range of emerging topics, including concurrency, Big Data, and event-driven programming. Students will learn to design, implement, analyze, and understand both domain-specific and general-purpose programming languages. . Develops basic concepts in languages, including means of computation, means of combination, and means of abstraction. . Examines imperative features such as references, concurrency features such as fork, and reactive features such as event handling. . Covers language features that express differing perspectives of thinking about computation, including those of logic programming and flow-based programming. . Presumes Java programming experience and understanding of object-oriented classes, inheritance, polymorphism, and static classes. . Each chapter corresponds with a working implementation of a small programming language allowing students to follow along.
