Credits: CS2400:CS2401 1:1
Prerequisites: CS2400 and CS2401: 2nd year CS B.Techs who have completed IITH courses in C programming and data-structures; Also, a concurrent
registration to both CS2400 and CS2401 is compulsory.
Course Description (CS2400)
The objective of CS2400 course is to learn basic principles of programming languages: their concepts, constructs, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. The
course will focus on the classic programming language paradigms of Imperative and Object Oriented.
This course will focus on understanding some aspects of Imperative and Object Oriented paradigms using C/C++, Java and Python as
Course Description (CS2401)
A large part of CS2401 lab would be in understanding the syntax or semantics of a variety of languages which fall under various paradigms
like Imperative (C/C++), Object Oriented (C++, Java, Python).
It would be a hands on approach involving writing programs in new programming languages. There would also be projects that involve writing
mini-translators for some of the above languages.
CS2401 is the B.Tech lab accompanying the corresponding B.Tech course CS2400. For registrants of CS2400, a registration to CS2401 is
compulsory. A major means of evaluation of CS2401 would be the above programming assignments.
