In CSE 262 – Programming Languages, we are currently learning the to program in Scheme. It is very different from Java and C/C++ . Scheme uses functional programming where was Java and C/C++ uses objective-oriented programming. With functional programming, you can generate output with a single command line program. The major difference is that you are dealing with a new syntax and grammar. For example, to add in Scheme you invoke a function like (define add(+ x y)) . This function will add two values and return the result. It is interesting approach to programming because the operation can be done with unlimited parameters which is not possible with language like Java or C/C++. The Scheme language is also case insensitive so you do not have to worry about uppercase and lowercase variables. We will have a programming assignment soon for it and I am excited to see how that goes!
