What is Programming?
Individual that composes instructions for computer systems to refer to when performing a given action. Programmers usually have an extensive background in some form of computer coding language, which may include XML, PHP, Perl, HTML, or SQL. Programmers are essential to the development of computers because, without the coding that is necessary to make a computer work properly, the machine would be useless. Programmers may specialize in one area or may write instructions for a wide range of systems or programs.
A computer is a tool for solving problems with data. A program is a sequence of instructions that tell a computer how to do a task. When a computer follows the instructions in a program, we say it executes the program. You can think of it like a recipe that tells you how to make a peanut butter sandwich. In this model, you are the computer, making a sandwich is the task, and the recipe is the program that tells you how to execute the task.
What is a programming language?
A programming language is, as the name would suggest, a language developed to express programs. All computers have a native programming language that they understand, commonly referred to as machine code. You can see the list of Programming language here.
Programming style is a set of rules or guidelines used when writing the source code for a computer program. It is often claimed that following a particular programming style will help programmers to read and understand source code conforming to the style, and help to avoid introducing errors.
For a good style of programming and implementing without any error is very much important to write code. So keep this thing in your mind while you code.
- Elements of good style
- Code appearance
- Vertical Alignment
The essence of good programming style is communication. Good style in programming is rough as difficult to learn as good style in English. In both cases, the document has no value if it does not convey its meaning to the reader. Any program that will be used must be maintained by somebody – and that somebody must be able to understand the code by reading it. Any program that needs debugging will be easier to debug if the creator carefully explains what’s going on.
Let’s look some of the videos in detail to learn what is actual mean of Programming Style.
Functional vs. Imperative
This video shows you several style of Programming whether you are IT or non-IT field person.
