6.005 Elements of Software Construction

Class Info

Introduces fundamental principles and techniques of software development, i.e., how to write software that is safe from bugs, easy to understand, and ready for change. Topics include specifications and invariants; testing, test-case generation, and coverage; abstract data types and representation independence; design patterns for object-oriented programming; concurrent programming, including message passing and shared concurrency, and defending against races and deadlock; and functional programming with immutable data and higher-order functions. Includes weekly programming exercises and larger group programming projects. 12 Engineering Design Points.

This class has 6.01, and 6.042 as prerequisites.

6.005 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by D. N. Jackson and R. C. Miller.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
