Fall, 2021

I was scheduled to teach BU CAS CS525 in Fall, 2021.

Title

Overview

Compiler Design and Implementation is a course that introduces students to some basics in the design and implementation of compilers. In this course, we are to teach the theory behind various components of a compiler as well as the programming techniques involved to put the theory into practice. The chosen programming language for implementation is ATS. However, you are free to choose another programming language (preferably, one of functional style) if you so wish.
