Prolog, Day 1: Thoughts The main goals of Seven Languages in Seven Weeks is not actually to teach you seven new languages, but to teach you seven new ways of thinking. In fact, the languages in the book are deliberately chosen so as to represent a wide spectrum of approaches to programming problems. While the first two languages, Ruby and Io , felt pretty familiar, the third one is a totally different kind of beast. Prolog is my first exposure to declarative programming and definitely a new way of thinking. All the previous languages followed an imperative model: you write code to tell the compiler what to do one step at a time to arrive at some result. In declarative programming, you actually start by describing the result you want and the compiler figures out the steps to get you there.
These books take commitment to read, but their impact can be profound. I loved it. The languages were suitably interesting and compellingly presented, and I now want to experiment with them.
Languages are not just new syntax, they are new ways of thinking about problems. What is the best way to think about user interfaces or scientific computing or distributed systems or safety guarantees?
As you dive into each of the languages in this book you will get a glimpse of new abstractions and principles that will help you write better programs in any language. You'll learn something new from each, and best of all, you'll learn how to learn a language quickly. Tate, you'll go beyond the syntax-and beyond the minute tutorial you'll find someplace online.
This book has an audacious goal: to present a meaningful exploration of seven languages within a single book. Rather than serve as a complete reference or installation guide, Seven Languages hits what's essential and unique about each language.
Moreover, this approach will help teach you how to grok new languages.
For each language, you'll solve a nontrivial problem, using techniques that show off the language's most important features. Explore the concurrency techniques that are quickly becoming the backbone of a new generation of Internet applications.
Find out how to use Erlang's let-it-crash philosophy for building fault-tolerant systems. Understand the actor model that drives concurrency design in Io and Scala.
Learn how Clojure uses versioning to solve some of the most difficult concurrency problems. It's all here, all in one place.
Use the concepts from one language to find creative solutions in another-or discover a language that may become one of your favorites. Seven Languages in Seven Weeks pdf Referentie: Pragmatic Bookshelf Waarschuwing: Real World
