CS325, Programming in Ada
Location and Time: KEC 132, TTh 1:25 - 2:40 Textbook: Cohen; Ada as a Second Language Other Reference Material: Lots of good stuff online for Ada, here are a few key links. Prerequisites: CS125 (or equivalent, see me) Final Exam: 12:30 - 2:30, Saturday, 8 Dec.
- Learn the basic syntactic and semantic features of Ada, particularly the features that differentiate Ada from C and other similar programming languages.
- Learn how much simpler it is to pick up a new language once you already have proficiency in a similar language
- Learn your way around the very basic commands of a Unix shell
- Learn some of the theoretical issues that separate one language from another. Languages are designed artifacts language designers have choices to make, since no one language can be all things to all users. Using Ada in comparison to C, we will explore some of the major alternatives that must be considered and what they mean to programmers.
Integrity Policy: Please read my notes on the standards I'll enforce for student integrity; you will be held to these standards whether you read my notes or not.
- Homework --- 40%. There will be at least half a dozen programming assignments of varying weights (later assignments will obviously be longer and hence worth more). Cumulatively, they will be worth 40%
- Exams --- 60%. One midterm worth 20% and a final worth 40%
Disability Accomodation: ERAU is committed to the success of all students. It is a University policy, that I fully support, to provide reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities. If you would like information about what accomodations we can make available, please contact the Disability Support Services at the Wellness Center at 777-6653. If you wish to request some accomodation, please contact either me (your instructor) directly or ask Disability Support Services to do so. Don't be bashful; if you need some help, ask for it. You're here to learn; I'm here to help you do so. All discussions are confidential.
