Programming Language Concepts: Improving your Software Development Skills, Edition 4


Learn Programming Language Concepts instead of just Programming Languages! It will help you to think in a more powerful, abstract but solution-oriented way about the problems you have to solve every day as a Software Developer. Knowing Concepts is much more powerful than knowing a Programming Language. Being able to identify a Concept in a Programming Language not only helps writing code in a more powerful style, it also makes you think about a given problem in a more abstract way. Additionally, it aids you in recognizing that very same Concept in other Languages that you might once use, and thus helps you when learning new Languages. Modern Programming Languages keep coming up with more and more new Concepts that make writing software more efficient and less error prone. However, most of us still try to solve all tasks in that verbose style we've known for ages. This results in too much (boilerplate) work that takes too long to write and introduces too many nasty bugs. But we're doing all that although there are so many helpful Programming Language Concepts around these days. Smart people have worked out these tools for us, so we should benefit from them, in order to make our lives as Software Developers easier, our software better in terms of quality and maintainability and thus make our customers happier. This book tries to shed light on modern Programming Language Concepts. It won't teach you a specific Language. Instead it makes the Concepts clear that the powerful Programming Languages of today lay their foundation on and what these are beneficial for. Many code examples in arbitrary Programming Languages as well as many illustrating figures help to get the ideas across. Covered topics are for example: Closures, Currying, Algebraic Datatypes, Type Classes, Immutability, Macros, Monads, Coroutines, Continuations, Lazy Evaluation, Destructuring, plus a chapter about basics that lays the foundation for being able to understand advanced topics.

About the author

I've been messing around with Computers since the 80s - first just in a playful way, but very soon I found interest in programming a C64, later an Commodore Amiga and finally IBM compatible PCs, Macs and Mobile Devices. I discovered Linux in the mid 90s and have been working with it permanently since then. That hasn't prevented me from adding experience in other Unices to it as well. I've worked professionally as Software Developer, Linux & Network admin and DevOp. I'm always looking for interesting new things in the world of Computers, Internet, Programming Languages and Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Big data and love acquiring new skills in those fields. I've written compilers for fun and recently completed a Stanford Machine Learning course on Coursera.

Gesundes Wachstum von Unternehmen hat nichts allein mit "Grï¿1⁄2ï¿1⁄2er-Werden" zu tun. Es beginnt stets im Inneren des Unternehmens, und zwar mit den Menschen. Wachsen kann jede Organisation nur dann, wenn Mitarbeiter ebenso wie die Fï¿1⁄2hrungskrï¿1⁄2fte und der Unternehmer selbst sich weiterentwickeln und dazu den entsprechenden Raum und die Zeit bekommen.
Deshalb hat Oliver Wegner fï¿1⁄2r gesundes Wachstum eine Formel entwickelt. Die Formel trï¿1⁄2gt der Tatsache Rechnung, dass die Menschen im Unternehmen der maï¿1⁄2gebliche, aber leider hï¿1⁄2ufig ï¿1⁄2bersehene Multiplikationsfaktor in der Wachstumsgleichung sind. Eine Firma wird nur dann wachsen, wenn die Mitarbeiter mitwachsen, wenn sie an Profil, an Verantwortung, an Kompetenzen und Fï¿1⁄2higkeiten gewinnen. Verï¿1⁄2nderungen an der Organisationsstruktur oder der Fï¿1⁄2hrungskultur allein bewirken nichts, weil ohne Verï¿1⁄2nderung der Menschen nur an ï¿1⁄2uï¿1⁄2eren Stellhebeln gedreht wird. Eine besondere Bedeutung kommt dem persï¿1⁄2nlichen Wachstum des Unternehmers selbst zu: Es wirkt sich im positiven Fall sogar potenzierend auf das Wachstum der gesamten Firma aus, im negativen Fall jedoch hemmend bis zur Insolvenz.
In seinem Buch ï¿1⁄2berwindet Oliver Wegner konventionelle Vorstellungen und Ansichten. Er will weniger methodisches Wissen vermitteln, als Impulse und Denkanstï¿1⁄2ï¿1⁄2e geben sowie neue, ungewï¿1⁄2hnliche Perspektiven erï¿1⁄2ffnen, so dass der Leser seinen Blick fï¿1⁄2r "echtes" und "falsches" (= aufgeblï¿1⁄2htes) Wachstum schult. Wegner unterscheidet echte von falschen Messgrï¿1⁄2ï¿1⁄2en und gibt zahlreiche Beispiele fï¿1⁄2r gesundes und krankes Wachstum, indem er den Blick auf wenig beachtete Zusammenhï¿1⁄2nge lenkt.
Das Buch zeigt praxisnah, wo Unternehmer und Fï¿1⁄2hrungskrï¿1⁄2fte den Hebel ansetzen kï¿1⁄2nnen, um ein gesundes Wachstum in ihrer Firma oder ihrem Bereich zu generieren. Zahlreiche Best-Practice-Beispiele von Unternehmen verschiedener Branchen veranschaulichen die Zusammenhï¿1⁄2nge.
