Evaluation of Languages and Libraries



When: Winter semester 2018-19

Contact: Prof. Paolo Bientinesi


Overview

This seminar is ideal for students who enjoy coding. Given a specific task (assigned in the first meeting), every student will adopt one language/library to implement possible solutions. Collectively, we will then evaluate the programmability and the performance of the different tools.
This semester, we will investigate the following languages: Julia, R, Clojure, Emacs Lisp, Scala, Rust, OCaml.

Every student has to code, give a presentation, and write a report.
