Introduction

Computers are an important part of our lives today. We use them all the time to do many different things.
You’ve probably used a laptop, desktop computer or tablet before maybe in some kind of CBT center or Exams at school e.t.c. But did you know that a smartphone is also a computer? And that there are computers inside ATM machines, washing machines, games consoles, calculators and cars? All these computers look different and work slightly differently, but they all have one thing in common: “they have to follow sets of instructions”, called programs, to complete tasks, and we code computers to interact with them this process is called coding or programming.

Programming

Computers are electronic devices that can process information. They can be the size of a room or fit inside tiny gadgets, and do all kinds of complex tasks. Computers are made up of hardware (the physical parts of a computer you can touch) and software(the parts you can’t touch). Computers need software
because they can’t think or act by themselves. They have to follow a detailed series of commands in a
piece of software known as a program. Programs are written in programming languages that computers can understand. You may be using those apps in your device PC or Mobile phone:

  • WhatsApp
  • Facebook
  • TikTok
  • MS Word
  • Google
  • Xender, e.t.c

You use programs every day. When you View your friend’s Status on WhatsApp, send a text, use a a satellite Dish to watch movies e.t.c, you’re using computer programs. In fact, you can write a program to make a computer do almost anything. The people who write programs are called programmers or software developers. Programmers write code in different programming languages depending on the type of program they want to build.

Types of Programming Languages

There are many different programming languages you can code in. Computers can understand more than one programming language at a time, so programs are often written using several different programming languages. As programmer you have to pick the best languages for the program you want to build, because different programming languages work better for different things. Every programming language has things it’s good and bad at. These are some programming languages and what they work best for. listed below.
