Learning and understanding the basic in computer programming


Hello Amanda!

1.   Programming – writing codes and declarations for computer commands.

Categories of Programming

1.   Machine Programming – only form of programming language and code that a computer directly understands. Most of the time machine codes uses binary codes to produce commands.

2.   Assembly Programming – symbolic representation of machine code. Assembly codes uses part of English language instead of using binary codes.

3.   High-level Programming

Assembler is a low-level programming language. It is used in Assembly language. Assembler converts commands to computer language (known as mnemonics or codes). Assembly, BASIC, C and C++ are considered to be low-level programming languages. A source program is the converted object code written for machine code. This is done by the compiler to convert it to machine readable form against human word instructions. Binary digits are numbers only used in computer machines between 1 and 0. Unlike our number system composed from 0 to 9 and rather combinations of it. Programming language is a language used to communicate with machine or computers.
