Introduction to Programming Languages
- Wikibooks
This book is an attempt to describe a bit of the programming languages zoo. We use each of the particular languages to introduce fundamental notions related to the design and the implementation of general purpose programming languages.

The Design and Implementation of Probabilistic Programming Languages
by Noah D. Goodman, Andreas Stuhlmüller - dippl.org
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.
