I started the book back in August and got as far as implementing the lexical analysis in the compiler, I was kinda hoping this course would give the the push to finish everything.
Note that this is one the first half of the coursework, I'm still waiting for the second part.
Seriously, if you're self taught, and have been writing code for a while, this and a great compiler course will take you to a new level.
I think I probably did it here. Or at least used this page as reference.
We actually physically built it on a breadboard.
It was fun and I learned a lot. Hopefully this is a similar experience for those who take it.
The included hands-on projects made it more fun and interesting. Basically you'll build a simple computer from the ground up, starting with flip-flops and going all the up up to ALU, memory and CPU.
The grader works well, so you can submit your code and it'll grade you in realtime. You can finish it in less than a month, if you have experience with electronics and Boolean logic.
