A programming language for beginners based on Turkish syntax

Tutar, Sercan
Programming is a difficult activity because it requires thinking in a way that ordinary people are not familiar with. It becomes more complex considering the unusual and sometimes contradictory (with daily life usage) symbols when designing programming languages. This thesis introduces an experimental programming language called TPD, which is designed to reduce the syntax- and semantics-oriented difficulties to a minimum and provide a head start in programming to high school students and novice programmers who are native speakers of Turkish. TPD mimics Turkish syntax in order to obtain a better learning curve by making use of the user's native language competence in learning the essentials of programming. TPD supports both imperative (procedural) and functional paradigms. General lists are provided as a built-in data type. Given the educational concerns, the design of the programming language goes hand in hand with the design of the development environment. Diagnostic features of the compiler are emphasized. Generated target code is in Java. The development environment features a graphical interface and a language-based editor.


Development of a library for automated verification of UML models
Çelik, Makbule Filiz; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Software designs are mostly modeled as Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams when object oriented software development is concerned. Some popular topics in the industry such as Model Driven Development, generating test cases automatically in the early phases of software development, automated generation of code from design model etc. use the benefits of UML designs. All of these topics have something in common which is the need for accuracy against the meta-model not to face problems in the latter phases...
A fuzzy petri net model for intelligent databases
Bostan, Burçin; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
Knowledge intensive applications require an intelligent environment, which can perform deductions in response to user queries or events that occur inside or outside of the applications. For that, we propose a Fuzzy Petri Net (FPN) model to represent the knowledge and the behavior in an intelligent object-oriented database environment, which integrates fuzzy, active and deductive rules with database objects. By gaining intelligent behaviour, the system maintains objects to perceive dynamic occurences and use...
Using collaboration diagrams in component oriented modelin
Tuncel, Mehmet Burhan; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) seems to be the future of software engineering. Currently, COSEML is the only modeling language that completely supports the COSE approach. Abstract decomposition of the system and their representing components are shown in a hierarchy diagram to support the COSE process model. In COSEML, only static modeling is supported through this single diagram. However, software is about behavior and static modeling is not sufficient to describe the system. The aim of thi...
A Virtual reality-based training environment designed for hands-on experience of software development
Güleç, Ulaş; İşler, Veysi; Yılmaz, Murat; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
This thesis study proposes an environment that provides an interactive virtual reality experience for individuals about the tasks of software development process starting from requirement analysis through software testing. The environment transports participants to the virtual world of a software development organization where they experience development problems. In this environment, the participant takes on the role of a novice software developer being recruited into a virtual software development organiz...
Software development in practice : a qualitative study in Turkish defense sector
Dilber, Başak; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2013)
Since management is an abstract concept, modeling or simulating software development projects is not exactly possible. Thus successful software project development and the factors affecting it have been popular fields of research for the last half century. The aim of this qualitative grounded theory study is to bring out the essence of the experience of people working as software developers in a specific organization operating in Turkey; to come up with a set of principles explaining the main success factor...
