I’ve had computer science education on my brain lately (more thoughts on that later) and just spent a few minutes to track down a few professors I spent a lot of time with in graduate school at the University of Alabama in the late ‘80s… Two are still in academia (back in 2012 when I made these notes), while one left for IBM @ RTP six months before I did…
Dr. Dorian Yeager (Was at Grove College back in 2012)
Programming Languages, master’s project, probably more
Compiler Construction, special project to build a Prolog-subset interpreter
Dr. Roman Swiniarski (Was at San Diego State University back in 2012)
System Programming, Computability
The main thing I remember from System Programming is that Dr. Swiniarski assigned a mammoth project to write a simple language interpreter with macro facility, to be implemented in C, x86 assembler, and S/370 assembler. It has always seemed funny-odd that we were forced to spend so much time on language interpreter issues for this class while Dr. Chung required a lot of attention to buffer management in Compiler Construction.
