• Unit 6: Scripting Languages

    Scripts are everywhere in computer science. Any job in the computer science field will require you to write a script at some point or another, whether that script sets up the runtime environment for an application or automates the build process. Scripting languages are primarily designed for "gluing", i.e. connecting components. We will first learn the basics of scripting, learning in particular how scripts are useful. You will then learn about the wide-ranging family of scripting languages and the properties that those languages tend to share. By the end of this unit, you will be able to define scripting and identify situations in which a script would be most useful.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 27 hours.
