The aim of the course is to teach you about the different paradigms of programming, their underlying concepts, and the relationships between them. We will mostly look at functional and logic programming, touching upon imperative programming concepts as we go through the course. We will study functional paradigm through OCaml and logic paradigm through Prolog (specifically SWI-Prolog). The official course description is here.

The course will be primarily taught through interactive Jupyter Notebooks. The instructions for setting up the notebooks is found here.
