Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
Representation of formal languages, lexical analysis, syntactic analysis, semantic analysis, code generation, error recovery, code optimization
Learning activities and methodology
Theoretical lectures: 1.5 ECTS. To achieve the specific cognitive competences of the course (PO a, c). Practical lectures: 1,5 ECTS. To develop the specific instrumental competences and most of the general competences, such as analysis, abstraction, problem solving and capacity to apply theoretical concepts. Besides, to develop the specific attitudinal competences. They consist in proposing during the practical lectures a compiler/interpreter project to be developed in teamwork (PO c, d, e, g, k). -Guided academic activities (present teacher): 1 ECTS. The student proposes a project according to the teachers guidance to go deeply into some aspect of the course, followed by public presentation (PO c, d, g). -Guided academic activities (absent teacher): 1.5 ECTS. Exercises and complementary readings proposed by teacher (PO a, c). Exercises and examination: 0,5 ECTS. To complete the development of specific cognitive and procedimental capacities (PO a, c).
