LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
This subject comprises 24 one-hour lectures plus 11 one-hour workshops combining group discussion and individual and small group programming work. Additionally, students develop two medium-size declarative programs for assessment.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
At the beginning of the semester, the coordinator will propose a textbook on declarative programming, which will be made available through University Book Shop and library. The current suggested textbook is Bryan O'Sullivan, John Goerzen & Don Stewart: Real World Haskell, O’Reilly Media. This textbook can also be read online gratis. Lecture notes for the subject are also available online.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
Over the last few years, the mainstream software industry has become quite interest in functional programming, as it promises more robust software by altogether avoiding many classes of problems common in non-declarative languages. Skills developed in this subject complement skills taught in other subjects, better equipping students for work in software design and implementation.
