What is Computer Programming?
Computer programming focuses on the use of programming languages, such as C++, Java, or HTML, to create,
maintain and update various types of software. It is a more open-ended field, compared to other computer science
fields like computer graphics, which focuses on visual arts, graphic images, and video; computer engineering,
which focuses on the design and development of technology and hardware; or computer networking, which involves
the communication between computers connected via a local area network and the internet.
Pull everything out of each cabinet and go through it. Discard or donate those things that are not frequently
used, duplicate items, broken items or things you forgot you had. Do this with each cabinet and drawer, setting
up separate areas on the floor for each group. Be ruthless. Most kitchens are short on storage space, so the
goal is to only have things you love and use regularly.
Programming languages are the numeric codes which instruct digital computer functions. Different types of
programming languages include machine and assembly languages, algorithmic languages, business-oriented
languages, education-oriented languages, object-oriented, declarative, and more.
Where do the professionals fit into this process of functionality? Computer programmers ensure the proper
function of computer systems, programs, and operations for a number of industries. So computer programmers apply
knowledge and skills in coding, languages, testing, software design and troubleshooting in order to complete
their day-to-day work.
