Supplementary Description: High-level programming languages like JavaScript, C#, and Scheme make programming a breeze, but how do they work? There's a big gap between Scheme and machine instructions for modern computers. In this course you learn how to translate a high level language with functions, automatic memory management, and several builtin datatypes all the way to Intel x86 assembly language. We target a subset of Racket (a dialect of Scheme) programs in our projects.
