Course objectives
Purpose of this lecture is to forward knowledge and experiences needed to development of software. A term "efficient programming" is here meant in two sense. Partly as work expended on creation of program that is to be efficient as possible and partly as program self whose implementation is also to be efficient as possible, i.e. so that computer while performs program makes minimum overhead (noneffective activity). Subject of lecture is not algorithm design self in term of complexity.
Learning outcomes
At the end of course student gains knowledge and routine leading to more efficient creation of software including more efficient implementation od algorithm.
  • Work efficiency in algorithm design.
  • Cutback of error rate in program creation.
  • Cutback of time needed to elimination of mistakes.
  • Usage of earlier written parts of programs.
  • Independence of program from later changes.
  • Portability of program to other environment.
  • Program efficiency.
  • Data access mechanism.
  • Implementation of program structures.
  • Difference in interpreted and compiled languages.
