This instructor-led live training is designed to provide participants to gain mastery on introduction to programming. You will learn the fundamentals of introduction to programming and with greater emphasis on the functionality and application to your work or study.
This course will introduce various concepts in computer programming. There are some simplifications in the explanations below. The purpose of programming is to tell the computer what to do. Computers are better at doing some things than you are like a chef is better at cooking than you are. It's easier to tell a chef to cook you a meal than to cook it yourself. The more precise you are in your request, the more your meal will turn out how you like it. In most scenarios like this in real life, small amounts of ambiguity and misinterpretation are acceptable. Perhaps the chef will boil your potato before mashing it instead of baking it. With computers, however, ambiguity is rarely acceptable. Programs are so complex that if the computer just guessed at the meaning of ambiguous or vague requests, it might cause problems so subtle that you'd never find them. Programming languages, therefore, have been designed to accept only completely clear and unambiguous statements. The program might still have problems, but the blame is then squarely on you, not on the computer's guess. Much of the difficulty in programming comes from having to be perfectly precise and detailed about everything instead of just giving high-level instructions. Some languages require total and complete detail about everything. C and C++ are such languages and are called low-level languages. Other languages will make all sorts of assumptions, and this lets the programmer specify less detail. Python and Basic are such languages and are called high-level languages. In general, high-level languages are easier to program but give you less control. Control is sometimes important, for example, if you want your program to run as quickly as possible. Most of the time total control and speed isn't necessary, and as computers get faster high-level languages become more popular. Here we will deal exclusively with high-level languages. Low-level languages are generally similar except there are often more lines of code to write to accomplish the same thing.
