Programming Reading Assignment


#282

What is a program?
a set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to
do.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
It is very complex, it introduces it’s own rules. It is like a maze. You can be lost inside the maze. Be careful !

What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages help us to talk with computer. Languages are converted to binary by compilers and the commands that we write are understood by the computer.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Just the names are similar. There is no relation between java and javascript.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
They are two names for the same language.

1. What is a program?
A program is a set of instructions for a computer to accomplish.

2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
The complexity can get out of control even for the maker, so a programmer needs to know how to keep complexity under control.

3. What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages help make communicating with computers more intuitive by using familiar terms and words.

4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Something about marketing using the name JavaScript to ride on the popularity of Java in the 1990s, other than the deceptive name the languages have nothing to do with one another nor are they similar.

5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
It is the same as JavaScript.


#284
  1. Specific set of ordered operations for a computer to perform
  2. It is must if we want to be serious…
  3. Translating to machines what humans want them to do.
  4. None. Java is programming language Javascript is Script
  5. bureaucracy… it 's the same…

Seems a little strange to post the answers here given that I see all the answers from everyone else and they are pretty much the same. :slight_smile: I’ll see if I can answer in a slightly different way.

What is a program? It’s a method to tell computers what to do. A list of instructions, if you will, that have to follow a certain standard (the language). When done right, magical things happen.

What can you say about complexity in progamming? Ha! Programmers probably make it more complex than needed. You’d think that giving a list of instructions to a computer ought to be straight forward, especially given the limited vocabulary but you know what they say, “To err is human, to really foul things up requires a computer”.

What function do programming languages have? Basically it’s our means of communication. Some languages have a very small vocabulary and some very large. And like a spoken language, in some cases the syntax isn’t so important and in others, the program won’t even run until you get it right.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? They share the word “Java”.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript. It’s like “Me, Myself and I”. They are one and the same.

  1. A program is many things, is a piece of text, is a directing force that makes a computer do many different things, is a data in computer and its memory, is a building of thought. Is interesting the way I saw and felt a program is for me a program end up being the soul of the computer and the computer is the body where it can change from fat to skinny from tall to large, so the computer is the body, the program is the soul and the programmer is the Creator, where the biggest problem of the Creator is not creating the program, is not the body of the computer, but that the Creator has to be clever and keep the program under control, which requites a lot of attention and discipline to keep the program under control.

  2. KISS= Keep it Simple Stupid, but Complexity should exist just as with us HUMANS it makes things harder to understand but necessary for growing.

  3. Help us to communicate better with the computer and allow us to direct the computer with more demand and less complexity.

  4. JavaScript just use the name for advertising purposes, nothing more than they are both programming languages.

  5. Javascript=ECMAS are the same thing.


#287
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions that tells the the computer what to do. It is a building of thought, costless, weightless, which can grow easily.

  2. The complexity in programming is like building your own maze which you might get lost in. Its important to keep programmes under control, the art of programming is controlling the complexity.

  3. The function of programming languages is to help the programmer explain/instruct the actions the computer has to perform on a higher level by providing building blocks that allow blocks that are easy to compose and understand.

  4. Javascript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java. The name just happens to be similar.

  5. ECMAScript is a version of JavaScript, version 3 was supported when JavaScript was rising to dominance between 2000-2010.


#288
  1. It is a set of instructions created from a programmer for the computer.
  2. It is best to keep it simple
  3. This is the language of the computers and is our way to interact with the machines.
  4. There is no relationship.
  5. It is the same thing.

#289

1. A program is a series of precise set of instructions that tell a computer what to do.

2. Programs can be super complex or very simple while the computer still does the same thing in both cases.
Complexity of a program is often measured from the perspective of the programmer.

3. Programming languages is the best way we know of to communicate with computers. Computers are dumb and can only make very simple instructions at the core. With programming language we have the ability to make super complex computer programs that seem very simple from our perspective.

4. There is no realtionship between JAVA and Javascript more than Javascript took the name for marketing purposes when JAVA was popular.

5. ECMAScript is practically Javascript. When Javascipt started to get used on more plattforms, a Group of people came up with a list of rules consisting of how Javascipt should be used. They called the list ECMAScript.


#290

What is a program?
A program is a piece of text typed by a programmer, it is the directing force to make the computer do what it does, it is data in the computer’s memory, but it also controls the actions performed on this same memory.
What can you say about complexity in programming?
A program’s size and complexity will grow out of control, confusing even the person who created it. The art of programming is the skill to control complexity.
What function do programming languages have?
A good programming language helps the programmer by allowing them to talk about the actions that the computer has to perform.
What is the relationship between Java and JavaScript?
I am not familiar with Java but as per the book, no real relationship exists. The names are similar due to a marketing decision.
What is ECMAScript and how is it related to JavaScript?
ECMAScript is the result of standardization of JavaScript in the 1990’s. They are the same language.


#291

1-What is a program?
A program is a bunch of instruction that can be written
with a specific way to let the computer execute some
specific actions.
2-What can you say about complexity in programming?
The complexity in programming can be easily very extreem
if not subdeviding the tast that can be programmed
in many piees
3-What function do programming languages have?
the function that have programming language is to make The
program easy to be written and well structured in a such way
to be able to write complex tasks in single linges.
4-What is the relationship between Java and Javascrip?
There is no relationship between Javascript and Java.
Its name was just chosen to make it known as Java at
that time was very famous.
5-What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
ECMAScript and Javascript means the same. ECMAScript is
the standart document that the ECMA organisation has written
to show how Javascript language should work.


#292

What is a program?
It is data on a computer’s memory that sends orders and instructions to control the actions performed on the memory.
What can you say about complexity in programming?
Keeping programs under control is the main problem of programming. The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity.

What function do programming languages have?
They take care of understanding details for us.
What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
None java was popular when Javascript launched and it was good marketing as blockchain is now LOL.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
They are the same.


#293

What is a program?
Program building set of instructions based in programming language.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
Complexity could be multiplicity of program connectivity structure. Necessary code for higher levels of programming.

What function do programming languages have?
Function is to simplify programmer’s interface and translate programmers instructions into binary environment.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Java is object oriented programming language in need of virtual machine and compiling.
JavaScript is programing language which runs browser environment only.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
ECMAScript is library of JavaScript functions features, hence relation to JavaScript.


#295
  1. Program are instructions of telling the computer of what needs to be done.

  2. Better to keep programming simple and clear, it can be extremely complex and make the programme lost and confused.

  3. Programming language is text which makes computer do what it does and construct the actions performed by the computer’s memory.

    4.Almost no relationship between Java and Javascript

    5.ECMA script are standards that describe how Javascript should work, most of the time use to label the same language


#296
  1. A program is a list of instructions the programmer gives the computer to execute.

  2. Simplify the complexity before it exponentially gets out of control.

  3. Programming languages are the same as any other language throughout the world, they make communication possible.

  4. Their names, they also both are used to write apps to be used inside a browser.

  5. ECMAScript and Javascript are the same language. ECMAScript was created to describe how Javascript would work.


#297
  1. A set of instructions communicating with the computer
  2. The greater the task or the greater number of instructions being created for the task would increase the complexity, increasing the chance for errors or bugs, also JavaScript may not always perform a task how the coder intends!
  3. To perform a set of tasks, allowing humans to utilise the CPU’s (or compiler) ability to perform tasks faster.
  4. Java and JavaScript are different, it was a marketers choice to use a similar name.
  5. ECMAScript and JavaScript are two names for the same language but ECMAScript is the standard.

#298
  1. Program is the way to instruct a computer what you want it to do.
  2. More complex programming language provide more freedom to implement your idea but the chance of making a mistake increases. If a program is less complex you have less freedom but it’s easier to understand.
  3. They allow programmers to create code that computers can interpret and use to complete tasks.
  4. There is no relationship, other than a chosen name for marketing purposes.
  5. ECMAScript and Javascript are the same language and are interchangeable. ECMAScript is the international standard documentation on Javascript and it is named after the ECMA International organization.

#299
  1. Computer programming is the process of building and designing an executable computer program for accomplishing a specific computing task. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_programming)

  4. The short answer is “NONE”. Javascript considers as high-level scripting language which utilizes the web browser to do most of the heavy lifting where Java is an object-oriented language. It located closer to the CPU, therefore, programmers have to do most heavy lifting to get the same results.

  1. What is a program? Something that instructs the basically “dumb” computer to do something.
  2. What can you say about complexity in programming? It seems to have gotten a little easier over time. And now GREATLY increases the average person’s ability to understand and achieve many boring or mundane tasks extremely fast.
  3. What function do programming languages have? They instruct the computers so humans can interact with them more efficiently.
  4. What is the relationship between Java and JavaScript? There is almost no relation. Java is a programing language that was created prior and the JavaScript folks just globed on to the name. Now we’re stuck with it.
  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to JavaScript? To standardize the way programmers were referencing the compatibility of their programs this sort of white paper was written defining how the JavaScript language should work. Now the terms are interchangeable, simply different names of the same language.

#301
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to do.
  2. A program can ingeniously combine an enormous number of these simple actions in order to do very complicated things. The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity.
  3. It allows you to do things that would take forever by hand, in seconds.
    It is a way to make your computer tool do things that it couldn’t do before.
    It provides a wonderful exercise in abstract thinking.
  4. There is no relationship between Java and Javascript.
  5. ECMAScript standard, after the Ecma International organization did the standardization. In practice, the terms ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably—they are two names for the same language

#302
  1. Is a list of instructons to perform a specific task(s) designed to solve specific problems.

  2. Programming is not easy and can be a bit complex.

  3. Programming languages are artificially constructed languages to instruct to computers what to do.
