1. Crafting Interpreters

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Software Programming Compilers - August 2021

Despite using them every day, most software engineers know little about how programming languages are designed and implemented. For many, their only experience with that corner of computer science was a terrifying "compilers" class that they suffered through in undergrad and tried to blot from their memory as soon as they had scribbled their last NFA to DFA conversion on the final exam. That fearsome reputation belies a field that is rich with useful techniques and not so difficult as some of its practitioners might have you believe. A better understanding of how programming languages are built will make you a stronger software engineer and teach you concepts and data structures you'll use the rest of your coding days. You might even have fun. This book teaches you everything you need to know to implement a full-featured, efficient scripting language. You’ll learn both high-level concepts around parsing and semantics and gritty details like bytecode representation and garbage collection. Your brain will light up with new ideas, and your hands will get dirty and calloused. Starting from main(), you will build a language that features rich syntax, dynamic typing, garbage collection, lexical scope, first-class functions, closures, classes, and inheritance. All packed into a few thousand lines of clean, fast code that you thoroughly understand because you wrote each one yourself.

2. Python Programming for Beginners: The Ultimate Guide for Beginners to Learn Python Programming: Crash Course on Python Programming for Beginners (Python Programming Books)

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Software Programming Compilers - August 2021

The history of Python kicked off when Guido van Rossum, the founder of Python, started working on it in the late 1980s. Python is the successor of the ABC programming language. The first Python version was released back in 1991 and has only grown exponentially since then. It now has a vast community that releases the latest updates regularly. Guido van Rossum is also known as the “ Benevolent Dictator for Life ”. This title was given to him by the Python community to honor him for his long-term commitment and dedication to the project and for being the project leader for such a long period. Python is a high-level interpreted programming language that is used throughout the world for general-purpose programming. It is an open-source programming language licensed by both the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and Open-Source Initiative (OSI). Like some other programming languages, its source code is also available under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Python 2.x, being the legacy version, was used earlier across the globe. It stopped receiving newer features and security updates after Python 2.7, so people migrated to Python version 3.x. Throughout this book, we will be focusing more on the Python 3.x version, which is the latest and is currently in active development. Before we proceed further, I would like to inform you all that the purpose of writing this book is to make your understanding of Python clearer by explaining technical terms in layman’s language with the help of code snippets and practical examples. I also wanted to make sure that the reader does not feel bored while reading the book, so I’ll be adding some attractive code snippets that are appealing to the eyes.

Even if you are a seasoned C++ developer, there are nuggets and data points in this book that you will find useful in your work. If you don't take care with your codebase, you can produce a large, messy, and unmaintainable beast in any programming language. However, C++ projects in particular are prone to get messy and tend to slip into a maintenance nightmare. There is lots of C++ code out there that looks as if it was written in the 1980s, completely ignoring principles and practices of well-written and modern C++. It seems that C++ developers have been forgotten by those who preach Software Craftsmanship and Clean Code principles. The web is full of C++ code examples that may be very fast and highly optimized, but whose developers have completely ignored elementary principles of good design and well-written code. This book will explain how to avoid this and how to get the most out of your C++ code. You'll find your coding becomes more efficient and, importantly, more fun. What You Will Learn Gain sound principles and rules for clean coding in C++ Carry out test-driven development (TDD) Better modularize your C++ code base Discover and apply C++ design patterns and idioms Write C++ code in both object-oriented and functional programming styles Who This Book Is For Any C++ developer or software engineer with an interest in producing better code.
