Online video lectures of a Compiler course
10 January, 2011 § 2 Comments
As mentioned earlier, in the Spring I will be taking a course on Compilers. I like to watch lectures from other universities to broaden my views on the topics so I did a little searching through the internet and compiled this list of places to visit for video lectures of Compiler courses.
MIT’s Computer Language and Engineering course from 2005 has some lectures available online. Unfortunately they are only in RealMedia format, however I recommend RealPlayer Enterprise version which is ad-free and nag-free.
UMass has screencasts of their Compiler Techniques course from Fall 2010 online. These are available in Flash video and playable through your standard web browser as long as you have the Flash plugin installed or are running Google Chrome. This looks to be great but &hellip
Unfortunately, the lectures for that UMass course seem to be kind of messed up (many of them are missing part or all of the audio). Too bad.
And last but not least, I found this very topic as a question on StackOverflow asking if there were any lectures online of Compiler courses.
I am still pretty geeked that you are taking the compilers course. Anytime you are simply parsing a text file it actually can get difficult! So it is great how some schools have their lectures publicly available; but it sounds like there is not enough of it. I suppose give it some time and more will be available.
Yeah it is really cool. I found some great tutorials by Scott Stanchfield at http://vimeo.com/groups/29150
