Its major premise is that practical programming, like other areas of science and engineering,must be based on a solid mathematical foundation. And you can get the strong exception safety guarantee whenever you need it. Useful and surprising applications are 1 matrix exponentiation to solve systems of setpanov recurrences in log n steps no stupid Fibonacci implementation here!

Thank you very much to both of you, those suggestions are exactly what was asked for. Writing exception-safe code is nearly impossible in C.

Members of my advanced development team at Adobe who took the course based on the same material all benefited greatly from the time invested.

Note that some of these are rehashes of my earlier comments. This subset is defined in a special language appendix coauthored by Sean Parent and Elemejts Stroustrup. It’s like if Bret Victor was a elrments, a tour de force of polymathical insanity.

Elements of Programming: the book

The author is Alexander Stephanov the father of generic programming. Up until recently I didn’t know the difference between graphs and networks.

Get unlimited access to videos, live online training, learning paths, books, tutorials, and more. Selected pages Title Page. If you’re careful to always use RAII by default, you can get the basic exception safety guarantee automatically without thinking about it. Account Options Sign in.

Fundamentally, the book provides all the diverse tools to give you confidence that your graphics are mathematically sound and visually pleasing. He has programmed operating systems, programming tools, compilers, and libraries.

I will most likely try Kotlin again, and this will prepare me for any possible switch to Swift. If you prefer video lectures, his second book is based off his lecture series Four three Algorithmic Journeys: To benefit fully, you will need to work through it from beginning to end, reading the code, proving the lemmas, and doing the exercises. Both the Gries book and Stepanov’s book have really impressive reviews on Amazon, am looking forward to diving into them.

Except in the simplest cases, you should try to use them instead of writing your own loops. This book is a pretty self-contained intro into the state of the art of deep learning. StepanovPaul McJones Limited preview – Has anyone progrqmming tried to explore the contents of this book in either Swift or Rust?


Elements of Programming

It may appear as a highly technical text intended only for computer scientists, but it should be required reading for all practicing software engineers. The book is in full color and it has some of the nicest looking and most instructive graphics I’ve ever seen even for things that I understand, such as Central Limit Theorem.

Inexhaustive pattern matching is considered a bug. It’s the first and only rigorous foundation of software engineering that I’ve seen. Has anyone here tried to explore the contents of this book in either Swift or Rust? Looking forward to the task of slowly working my way through it.

Not too bad for a 4, year old multiplication algorithm. Hacker News new comments show ask jobs submit. Not done with the book but despite it’s age, hands down best intro to pogramming theory if you care about it only for CS purposes as it tries to show how to apply the concepts.

Ordered Algebraic Structures 6. For example, the fast exponentiation algorithm is defined to work with any associative operation.
