Real-World Links, CSE341 Winter 2008

Lecture 6, on course motivation, included several web links to projects, languages, and companies related to functional-programming concepts covered in 341. There are many other possible links, particularly more using SML and Scheme, but these were largely chosen for their timeliness and connection to things students are more likely to have heard about.

These are just some examples, not a promotion of any particular technology or company. Obviously.



C# 3.0


CUFP (workshop for small companies using functional programming), such as Jane Street and Galois

The Macah compiler (one of hundred of research projects using functional languages for compilers or code-analysis tools; this one is at UW and the research is about computer architecture)
