Overview

Today the number of available programming languages is large and continues to increase, creating a challenge in choose the right tool for a task. However, programming languages are more alike than they are different. To master new languages with minimum time and effort, professional developers need to know the basic structures, semantics and elements that are common to all programming languages. They also need to understand the design principles of a small number of paradigms that effectively group languages. This advanced course forms an endpoint in the formal investigation into programming, and provides the skills for practitioners to continue to grow their expertise over a large range of present and future languages.
