What is a computer program and programming
A computer program is a set of instructions that are written by a developer and programming is the skill that helps you to develop a program and solve the problem.
Let’s understand one by one.
As previously defined, a computer program is a set of instructions to perform some specific task by computer machine. Computer machine only understands machine language.
So, we use compilers or interpreters to convert human-readable program code into machine language and vice versa.
Machine language is made of binary numbers (0 or 1).
A computer is a simple machine who does not understand without prior order/command. When any user commands, it acts. Similarly, when a user uses a computer program; our hardware machine acts.
Programming is the skill of writing formulas formerly known as algorithms. You can also say that it is the process of writing any program.
Developers do a program in any programming language like C, C++, C# etc. Means we need any programming language to write programs.
If you want to learn to programme you to need mathematical and logical skills.
A person who writes a program known as developer or computer programmer.
Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer. She works with Charles Babbage in his general-purpose machine computer.
