This self-paced course will discuss the major ideas used today in the implementation of programming language compilers, including lexical analysis, parsing, syntax-directed translation, abstract syntax trees, types and type checking, intermediate languages, dataflow analysis, program optimization, code generation, and runtime systems. As a result, you will learn how a program written in a high-level language designed for humans is systematically translated into a program written in low-level assembly more suited to machines. Along the way we will also touch on how programming languages are designed, programming language semantics, and why there are so many different kinds of programming languages.

Time series and streaming databases are hot right now. That's why my second wife left me. Just like a lot of people these days, everybody wants one or thinks that they want one. Given this, we are bringing back another season of database technical talks at Carnegie Mellon University in Fall 2017.

Jeremy Keith argues that A/B testing, unchecked, by asking merely *what* works, and not *why*, can lead to optimising for dark patterns. "A/B testing needs to be counterbalanced. There should be some kind of mechanism for getting the answer to “why?” whenever A/B testing provides to the answer to “what?” In-person testing could be one way of providing that balance. Or it could be somebody’s job to always ask “why?” and determine if a solution is qualitatively—and not just quantitatively—good."
