Semester of Instruction
Objectives and Content
The course gives a practical and theoretical introduction to the semantics of programming language constructs. The course covers a range from micro level constructs, e.g., parameter passing, to macro level constructs, e.g., module systems. Reflecting on the influence of the constructs on software quality forms part of the course.
After successfully completing the course, the students shall be able to:
- Define micro level constructs by programming evaluators.
- Define macro level constructs and how they are emulated in common programming languages.
- Identify language features that benefit software integrity (reliability, robustness, and security) and software validation (verification and testing).
