Seven Languages in Seven Weeks. A Pragmatic Guide to Learning. Programming Languages. Bruce A. Tate. The Pragmatic Bookshelf. Raleigh, North Carolina. FOREWORD Twenty years ago when I wrote this book, I had no idea how the world would change Seven Habits of Highly. Kindle formart, pdf file, epub, or html version, you can choose from all these free formats. Git Pro book cover Seven Languages in Seven Weeks ().
It also embraces OOP. As you dive into the Scala community, you'll see why Scala represents pure heresy to pure functional programmers and pure bliss to Java developers. One of the oldest languages on this list, Erlang is gathering steam as a functional language that gets concurrency, distribution, and fault tolerance right.
The creators of CouchDB, one of the emerging cloud-based databases, chose Erlang and have never looked back. After spending a little time with this distributed language, you'll see why. Erlang makes designing concurrent, distributed, fault-tolerant applications much easier than you could have ever thought possible.
It is the only language in this book that uses the same strategy in versioned databases to manage concurrency.
Seven Languages in Seven Weeks
As a Lisp dialect, Clojure packs plenty of punch, supporting perhaps the most flexible programming model in the book. But unlike other Lisp dialects, the parentheses are greatly reduced, and you have a huge ecosystem to lean on, including a huge Java library and widely available deployment platforms. This language is the only pure functional language in the book.
That means you won't find mutable state anywhere. The same function with the same input parameters will give you the same output, every time. Of all the strongly typed languages, Haskell supports the most widely respected typing model. Like Prolog, it will take a little while to understand, but the results will be worth it.
Those languages that I picked are not necessarily the best, but each one is unique, with something important to teach you. I just finished Ruby - Day 1, which I'll blog about shortly.
I get a good sense that I'm really going get a lot of out it. Based on the first set of self-study questions, Tate really asks a lot of the reader; it's basically like you get homework assignments with every day of teaching.
Very exciting! As a kid, homework was lame; but as an adult, the idea simply rawks! Glad you're doing this as a series, Ben! We get to be armchair explorers as you do the hard work.

Ben - this is very valuable. I'd love to teaching programming using this "buffet" approach.
So far, it's a lot of fun! At the very least, Ruby was easy to install on Windows and was already installed on my Mac. I'm hoping it will give me some great perspective on the world of programming.

Of course, I'm adding all the extra syntax I can! When I saw the title of the blogpost I thought, "wow that sounds awesome! Then I read along to what languages were involved and was more like "huh?!?!
I think the point of the book is to explore languages that very different than the ones you might be used to.
The fact that you'd cut out five weeks is probably all the more reason that the book would hold value: As much as I love ColdFusion, I don't think I have enough code monkey in me to want to get into more languages. Especially cause I don't take well to reading; I'm more of a visual person.
A Pragmatic Guide to Learning Programming Languages
I know what you mean. It can also be very frustrating going from a situation where we know a lot of info ColdFusion into one where we know nothing! At that point, you know concepts, but have no way of implementing them. Each language in Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks will take you on a step-by-step journey through the most important paradigms of our time.
Just as each new spoken language can make you smarter and increase your options, each programming language increases your mental tool kit, adding new abstractions you can throw at each new problem.

Knowledge is power. The Seven in Seven series builds on that power across many different dimensions. Each chapter in each book walks you through some nontrivial problem with each language, or database, or web server.
