[As described below, this is Part C of a 3-part course. Participants should complete Parts A and B first -- Part C "dives right in" and refers often to material from Part A and Part B.] This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of programming languages, with a strong emphasis on functional programming. The course uses the languages ML, Racket, and Ruby as vehicles for teaching the concepts, but the real intent is to teach enough about how any language “fits together” to make you more effective programming in any language -- and in learning new ones. This course is neither particularly theoretical nor just about programming specifics -- it will give you a framework for understanding how to use language constructs effectively and how to design correct and elegant programs. By using different languages, you will learn to think more deeply than in terms of the particular syntax of one language. The emphasis on functional programming is essential for learning how to write robust, reusable, composable, and elegant programs. Indeed, many of the most important ideas in modern languages have their roots in functional programming. Get ready to learn a fresh and beautiful way to look at software and how to have fun building it. The course assumes some prior experience with programming, as described in more detail in the first module of Part A. Part B assumes successful completion of Part A. The course is divided into three Coursera courses: Part A, Part B, and Part C. As explained in more detail in the first module of Part A, the overall course is a substantial amount of challenging material, so the three-part format provides two intermediate milestones and opportunities for a pause before continuing. The three parts are designed to be completed in order and set up to motivate you to continue through to the end of Part C. Week 1 of Part A has a more detailed list of topics for all three parts of the course, but it is expected that most course participants will not (yet!) know what all these topics mean....




Great course, nicely rounded off the discussions from previous parts. Really puts OOP style programming in context and nicely contrasts it from the functional programming concepts. Highly recommended!



Very Challenging course but worth it at all the explanation in the three parts helps you a lot I recommend it for every one wanting to approach better to different programming languages.

At the end of part C I will give an overall impression abouth the whole course. I have Masters in Computer Science and overall experience with different programinng languages aroung 10 years. 5 of wich is full-time job of enterprise programming. Having all that this course still was completely awesome I had enourmous amount of fun taking it. I elarn plenty of new stuff and for most of the key parts I finally got a clear precise definition of things I already new but it was more intuitive without actual scientific explanation. Dan is an awesome lecturer he is plesand and fun to listen too. I would recomend this course to anyone who wan't to susm up their knowledge. I had no problems with homeworks but there still was couple of chalenges, i think It might be a bit hard to complete for a novices. Anyways huge thank's to Dan when ever I will need to explain some basic concept to someone at work I will refer to Dan's definition and really recomend to watch this course.

This whole course series is extraordinarily good. I've been programming professionally for 15 years mainly OOP and knew a lot of things but I had many aha-moments in this course and really gained a deep understanding of the concepts provided here. Thank you very much.

I watch the video lectures as supplements for a course I am taking at my university, which happens to be based on this course. I feel compelled to say that this is one of the best courses I have ever taken and Dan Grossman is the best instructor I have ever had.

創建者 Joshua H


As far as I know this is the best series of courses that covers the major programming paradigms and the most valuable idioms that emerge from the different traits of these paradigms. I strongly recommend it to everyone studying computer science!

創建者 Shaohao Z


It really took quite a lot effort to accomplish the course and I'm sure that I am having a much clearer mind towards different programming language, which is impossible without this course.

So thank you for bringing us this wonderful course, Dan!

創建者 Abhik K


Perhaps the best course i have completed on Coursera. I aboslutely love Dan Grossman's teaching approach. I can only applaud the care and effort that has gone into designing this. I would eagerly join any course that Dan teaches in future

Clear and refreshing. Especially the part comparing OOP with FP. They way to compare subtyping and generics is also novel. I have been writing OOP and FP programs for years but haven't look at them from such a point of view.

創建者 Rongge Y


Very passionate instructor and very rich and well-organized content. Great to learn and reflect on some novel concepts like double dispatch and sub typing; it's really enlightening. Great course experience. Thank you Dan!

創建者 Zijiao Y


I would say I got the exact the same reason as Dan for choosing computer science to be a huge part of my life: The true Awe-inspiring thing! And this is literally the best course I have ever take for the past 20 years

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!

創建者 Shreck Y


Excellent course that introduced me to the field of programming languages. I can now see many OOP programs and languages from the functional perspective and simplify a lot of problems.

創建者 Peter D


Best MOOC taken so far! Learnt a lot about programming languages and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more and understand deeper about programming language in general.

創建者 Nelson V


One of the best courses of my career. This was truly programming languages. You'll look at your programs, in any language you use, in a whole different way! Highly recommended!

創建者 Ahmed E


It was an incredible journey, have learnt from it a lot of things, Prof. Dan was spectacular, his way of delivering difficult concepts in an easy way is very very good.

創建者 Abdullah E M S E


Great course that teaches you a lot about different programming paradigms and concepts. Gives you in depth understanding of how programming languages work

創建者 Guo F


Last Part of the course. A fantastic learning experience. Thank you Dan and other folks participating in the creation of this course, for the great work!

創建者 Sorin J


Outstanding! Even if this part of the course is primarily focused on Ruby and OOP, there is a lot in it to learn even for experienced programmers.

創建者 Sony


It is a very challenging but rewarding course. Dan is a great teacher, he engages you in learning and makes it much more fun. I enjoyed a lot.

創建者 Sam C


I​t is such a great experience for me to learn this course! I want to say a big thank you to Dan and people behind this course!

創建者 Wei J


Really helpful for understanding a lot of programming concept. Very wonderful experience. Thanks to Dan and Coursera!

創建者 Luiz C


in my top 3 course on Coursera Platform. A must for anyone interested in Programming, beginner to experienced

創建者 Yifeng M


The course series covered a broad range of knowledge. And the material are presented with great details.
