Prolog is a language from the 1970s that has a lot to teach us about the way programming might be in the future. It’s included as a Coding Stone because I believe every developer needs a basic understanding of this declarative language.
In this course you'll learn the basics of programming in Prolog, both by coding along and by completing the exercises.
