About This Item

Cambridge: MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, nd. DVDs. As New. 20 one-hour lectures on ten DVDs. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs was MIT's introductory computer science course from 1980 to 2008. It emphasized the role of computer languages as vehicles for expressing knowledge and it presented basic principles of abstraction and modularity, together with essential techniques for designing and implementing computer languages. The course had a worldwide impact on computer science curricula. The accompanying textbook by Hal Abelson, Gerald Jay Sussman, and Julie Sussman is available for purchase from the MIT Press, which also provides a freely available on-line version of the complete textbook. These twenty hour-long video lectures by Hal Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman are a complete presentation of the course, given in July 1986 for Hewlett-Packard employees, and professionally produced by Hewlett-Packard Television. Note: These lectures follow the first edition (1985) of Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs. Many of the programs discussed were rewritten for the second edition (1996) of the book, and new material was added. These video lectures will still be useful for students using the second edition, since the overall themes of the course and order of presentation are unchanged.
