Programming is what makes a computer more than a simple pocket calculator.
It is the language used to create computers programs, using source codes written in a programming language usually created by expertise in many different subject, such as: algorithms and formal logic. In other words, programming are the steps read by the computer to execute any requirement. Everything that you can do on a PC someone had pogrammed it previously, and it is essencial to create softwares and new technologies.
It developes a series of steps:
Define the problem
- Plan a solution
- Code the program
- Select a program to use
- Debugs the program in stages to ensure no errors are introduced
- Document the design , development and testing of the program
HOW PROGRAMMING WORKS
A computer is essentially just a big bunch of tiny electronic switches that are either on or off. by setting different combinations of these switches, you can make the computer do something, for example, display something on the screen or make sound. That's ehat programming is at its most basic - telling a computer what to do.
of course, understanding which combination of zwitches will make the computer do what you want would be a daunting task - that's where programming languages come in.
WHAT DOES A COMPUTER PROGRAMMER DO ?
Generally, there are 5 basic stages of develpment that a computer programmer addresses in designing software. They are defining the need, desingning a flowchart, coding the software, debugging and beta testing.
