Great course with really interesting and challenging assignments that allow to get more precise vision on programming languages (especially on PL's typing systems) and get experience with modern LISP
This course (as Part A and C) is great - Dan is great in teaching and the content is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about programming languages!\n\nWarning - you might end up loving FP :)

Very good course. It helps contrast dynamically typed language such as Racket and a statically typed language such as ML to help me better understand the tradeoffs in language designing. In this sense, it makes me a better programmer in other languages.
par Luiz C•
Fantastic course, a must for anyone serious or interested about programming. Challenging, but time really well spent: Course very well organized, quality videos by a very engaging professor, and very interesting with gradual complexity exercises
par Juliano P•
Great! A complement to Part A and it really uses things we've learned in Part A with the Standard ML language and does lots of comparisons, so you should probably take Part A if you have never used SML. Learned a lot with this course. Thanks!
par John S•
An absolutely high quality class. The instruction is superb, the assignment is on par with top programs at Stanford, MIT, and CMU. Dr. Grossman's lecture is just so clear and energetic that makes learning this hard topic fun.

I didn't terribly care about racket because of some previous common lisp/scheme experience; I wish the static/dynamic typing comparison had more space, but that's just because to ME that was the most interesting part.

I took this course about 10 years off the college, and it was excellent refresher on the topics I don't use on a daily basis. Absolutely great lecturer, great videos and study materials!
par Jiangnan T•
Thanks for this wonderful course. What I learned through this course really made me a much more efficient programmer, and it helped me to grasp new programming language a lot faster.
par Yuji S•
Great course! Learned more about PL, what is interpreter/ compiler language, what is statically typed/ dynamically typed. The homework is very rewarding! Looking forward to Part C.
par David H•
Fantastic course on functional programming, programming languages, and type theory. Highly recommended. Dan is an amazing teacher and the course structure and pace is excellent.
par Sam S•
A strong follow-up to Part A. The second week's homework assignment is quite difficult, but very rewarding. This course has greatly helped shape my views on programming.
par Jose J•
Excelent course.! Wished contained more material. Also I think changing the editor from Emacs to Dr Racket was not really necessary... all in all excellent course!
par Jacob K•
Just as good as the first segment of the course. Learned a lot of good material about dynamically vs statically typed languages and how languages are interpreted.
par Pedro d S Q•
Very enjoyable course, follow-up to Part A. Building an interpreter really solidifies what we saw, a really nice exercise. I'll definitely move on to part C!
par Gabriel A S•
I'll learn many things in this course with the enthusiasm and hard work of a very knowledgeable professor on the field. Great course 10/10 would do it again.
par Kevin X•
This series is really the course you need to take if you feel not comfortable and want to know why(or describe the feelings) when you code in school or work.
par Paramjot S•
s a very good introduction to functional programming in dynamic language by focusing on the fundamentals. Highly recommended!!
par Yuchong P•
The course is really fantastic! It leads me to the world of Racket programming and guides me to many concepts in programming language theory (PLT).
par Peter B•
Suitable even for experienced programmers.
Excellent presentation of fundamental programming concepts.
Exercises are challenging but rewarding.
par Xiangyu G•
The programming assignments are carefully designed such that without so much coding you can capture the essence of the idea. Highly recommend.
It's challenging as much as it is rewarding, and the peer review is a very nice arrangement for people to see how others are doing things!
par Iris H•
Great follow-up to Part A, really builds on the concepts introduced there and tackles some quite complex topics (writing an interpreter)!
par Yuxing C•
Really good course, hope I can get content of this high quality in my own university. Programming language Theory is really beautiful.
par Orlando L•
This course presents a beautiful contrast between static and dynamic Type Systems. Week's 2 homework is challenging and rewarding.
par Maximilian P•
If you really wanna get what programming languages are about, give this one a whirl! Great homework assignments and solid videos.
