Programming and Programming Languages
by

Publisher: Brown University
Number of pages: 262

Description:
Many people would regard this as being two books in one. One book is an introduction to programming, teaching you basic concepts of organizing data and the programs that operate over them, ending in the investigation of universally useful algorithms. The other book is an introduction to programming languages: a study, from one level up, of the media by which we structure these data and programs.

This book explains how to implement PPLs by lightweight embedding into a host language. We illustrate this by designing WebPPL, a small PPL embedded in Javascript. We show how to implement several algorithms for universal probabilistic inference.
