Programming Reading Assignment


#303

Very excited
HMTL is already kind of addictive and I will be going back to learn more in depth about CSS.
Here are my answers from the JavaScript reading assignment:

  1. What is a program? A program is a set of precise instructions typed by a programmer that tell a computer or (other program?) what to do.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming? Judging from the text it seems complexity is inevitable in programming, even though, and perhaps because, the basic rules and actions can be incredibly simple. It appears that taking your time, and paying attention to the growth of this complexity is more important than adhering strictly to any set of “best practices.”

  3. 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 on a higher level. It helps omit details, provides convenient building blocks (such as while and console.log), allows you to define your own building blocks (such as sum and range), and makes those blocks easy to compose.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? On a technical level there is almost no relationship between JAVA and JavaScript. JavaScript was introduced during a time of popularity for JAVA and so the name was chosen in an attempt to ride some of JAVA’s hype.

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript? ECMAScript is a standard document describing how Javascript should work. These terms ECMAScript and JavaScript can usually be used interchangeably.

1.Set of precise instructions that tells computer what to do.
2.As program gets longer it may become confusing even to original programmer , so its always better to keep code simple so anybody can understand the code.
3.It provides way of interacting with computers in human readable form without which it would have been difficult to use binary language to interact with computers.
4.There is no relation between Java and Javascript, the name Javascript was adopted just for the marketing as popularity of Java was increasing when Javascript was introduced.
5.ECMAscript is scripting standard for all implementations of javascript like jsscript so as they behave same way across different platforms.Javascript and ECMAscript are generally used interchangebally.


#305

What is a program?
A set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to do.
A program can ingeniously combine an enormous number of these simple actions in order to do very complicated things.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. There are many terrible mistakes to make in program design - a sense of what a good program looks like is developed in practice, not learned from a list of rules.

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 on a higher level. It helps omit details and provides convenient building blocks.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
JavaScript was introduced in 1995 as a way to add programs to webpages in the Netscape Navigator browser.
The programming language named Java was being heavily marketed and was gaining popularity when JavaScript was being introduced. Java has almost nothing to do with JavaScript.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
After its adoption outside of Netscape, a standard document was written to describe the way the JavaScript language should work, so that the various pieces of software that claimed to support JavaScript were actually talking about the same language. This is called the ECMAScript standard, after the Ecma International organization that did the standardization. In practice, the terms ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably—they are two names for the same language.

  1. What is a program?

A program is a set of instruction written in a programming language to be interpreted and executed by a computer.

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?

Large programs can become very complex and it is the task of good programmers to manage this complexity.

  1. What function do programming languages have?

Programming languages come equipped with a limited set of functions and it is up to the developers to create new functions to satisfy their needs.

  1. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

No relationship whatsoever. The similar names originated from a marketing stunt.

  1. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?

ECMAScript is the document that describes how standard Javascript is suppose to work. The term is synonymous with Javascript.


#307

What is a program?
A program is instructions for a computer telling it to do something.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
Complex code can often be re-written in more simple and concise code which is better

What function do programming languages have?
They make speaking to the computer more like human languages.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
There is little relation other than a marketing scheme to bring eyes on Javascript

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
It is the same as Javascript. ECMAS standardized the language once it was getting popular in the early 2000s.


#308
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions telling the computer what to do.
  2. Complexity in programming results when the number of simple programs within the overarching main program grow too large to manage efficiently.
  3. Programming languages simplify our interaction with computer using a higher level human understandable language instead of binary machine language.
  4. There is no relationship between Java and Javascript.
  5. ECMAScript is the international standard version of Javascript.

#309

1.Exact set of structured instructions,that tell a CPU +RAM what to do
2.Complexity is not the target and should be avoid.Program have to be simple and readable as possible
3.In order not to communicate in machine language is needed there is a need for programming language which scales words, not digits .This makes it easier to communicate with your computer .
4.There is no relation between Java and Java scrypt .
5.Two name of the same language .ECMAScrypt is just standard or rule


#310
  1. A set of instructions that tells the computer what to do.
  2. In the past, code used to be very complex; now, it seams to have gotten easier.
  3. To communicate and interact with computers.
  4. There is no relation; they are two different programming language.
  5. ECMAScript is another name for JavaScript.

#311

Hi there,

a program is text=Code put by a developer in order to execute a certain function. A program is also data which is stores int he Computers Memory.

Master complexity in the most eficient and most simple way possible is the art of the game, therefor it is requiired to test new fields and continue learning testing and failing until the Goal is achieved.

Programming languages executes the set goals and desired functions a developer has given as order.

There is no real relationship between the two of them.

The ECMA script is a standardization script of languages Java Script fullfills those requirements.


#312
  1. What is a program? A set of instructions wirtten by the programmer to be processed by the computer to perform tasks.
  2. What can you say about complexity in programming? It can be as complex as you the programmer want it to be. Programming follows set rules that we must follow.
  3. What function do programming languages have? Allow us to write code to be processed by the computer.
  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? They both start with “Java”, but no other relationship
  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript? ECMAScript and Javascript are essentially same. The latter was created for the Netscape Browser. ECMAScript is the standard created to be used by other browsers.

#313
  1. What is a program?
    A program is a set of precise instructions (code) that tell a computer what to do in a language a computer comprehends.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    The art of programming is controlling the complexity of a program by simplfying and minimising the size of the code where a computer can understand and excecute instructions without confusion.

  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Programming languages allow computers to understand, interact and excecute instructions by the programmer who writes the code for a program to perform a task or tasks.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    They are both programming languages but have no direct relationship. The creator named Javascript similar to Java to benefit it from the marketing being conducted by Java.

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    ECMAScript and Javascript are the same languge. ECMAScript Is the standard document that defined how the JavaScript language should work.


#314
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to do.
  2. Programs tend to grow in complexity and can easily go out of control. Keeping programs under
    control is the main problem of programming. The art of programming is the skill of taking the bull
    of complexity by its horn.
  3. Programming languages allow you to instruct the actions that the computer has to perform on a
    higher level. It helps omit details, provides convenient building blocks , allows you to define your
    own building blocks , and makes those blocks easy to compose.
  4. Java and JavaScript have absolutely no relation whatsoever.
  5. ECMAScript is the JavaScript standardization done by the Ecma International organization.
    ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably—they are two names for the same
    language.

#315

1.What is a program?
A program is the building of thought. It is a piece of text typed by a programmer that directs the force to make the computer do what it does. A program is the data in the computers memory card and it also controls how that data is used.

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    Programming has fundamental rules that are typically simple and clear. Programs that are built on top of these basic rules can become complex. The art of building great programs is made simple in its complexity.

  2. What function do programming languages have?
    Program languages provide the programmer convenient building blocks to produce working applications for web development.It also allows the programmer to add additional building blocks as well as the means of expression.

  3. What is the relationship between Java and JavaScript?
    Java was an extremely popular programming language in 1995. Netscape introduced a new scripting language that was initially designed to compliment Java. This new scripting language finally became known as JavaScript.

  4. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to JavaScript?
    JavaScript was created by Brendan Eich for Netscape in 1995. In 1997 Netscape created ECMAScript to start a standard for JavaScript. JavaScript is the Language which implements a standard called ECMAScript.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?

  6. A program is many things. It is a piece of text typed by a programmer, it is the directing force that makes the computer do what it does, it is data in the computer’s memory, yet it controls the actions performed on this same memory.

  7. Complexity has to be under control of the programmer. The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. The great program is subdued—made simple in its complexity.

  8. Programming languages help programmer to talk about the actions that the computer has to perform on a higher level.

  9. JavaScript has almost nothing to do with Java. The similar name was inspired by marketing considerations. When JavaScript was being introduced, the Java language was being heavily marketed and was gaining popularity. Someone thought it was a good idea to try to ride along on this success.

  10. ECMAScript is a scripting-language specification. It was created to standardize Javascript. JavaScript has remained the best-known implementation of ECMAScript.


#317
  1. A program is a set of instructions provided to the computer in order to perform a specific task
  2. Controlling the complexity is the art of programming. Programs may often increase too much in size and thus become very complex.
  3. A programming language have the functions of communicating with the computer in efficient way. It allows to provide set of instruction in more organised way and it also allows to create various blocks and functions for better understanding of the programmer.
  4. Java is a programming language launched when Javascript was gaining traction of it’s users. Javascript is used to program web browsers.
  5. They are same languages. ECMAScript is the name given to the standard document which was created in order to understand what all applications support use of Javascript as a programming language.

#318
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to do.
    2.Programming-the act of constructing a program.Its complexity relies on programming languages - artificially constructed languages to instruct a computer, borrowing the style of communication that people rely on to express themselves.
    3.The main function of programming is the interaction people have with computers as the means of creating or implementing something.
  2. Java has almost nothing to do with JavaScript.
  3. ECMA is a standard, it is the synonym of JavaScript - a scripting language providing the rules and details that a scripting language must observe to be considered ECMAScript compliant.

#319

What is a program?A set up precise instructions that tell a computer what to do

What can you say about complexity in programming? The more complex a program is, yes the more it can do but the easier it is to lose understanding on what it does and you stand a higher change of error and conflicts with more complex programs so this is why I suggest using notes throughout the program so you know what the sections do, like breadcrumbs

What function do programming languages have? Make it easier to interface with the computer and tell it what to do with a human language

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? First comes Rock. Anyways, first came Java and due to marketing ploy, they called the web based language that has nothing to do with Java JavaScript or JS. Now we’re stuck with it since 1995

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript? Basically if someone says they support JS, they make the distinction to make sure that they follow standards to make sure they do and not just supporting Java which is not the same as JS


#320
  1. A set of precise instructions that tells a computer what to do.
  2. It can be extremely simple or complex. Readable or unreadable can still produce the same results
    3.A way to command the computer what to do.
    4.Nothing they name it that for marketing purposes
    5.They are the same thing

#321

1. What is a program?

A program is a set of instructions that responds it’s given inputs with encoded operations to return an output dependent on the inputs provided.

2. What can you say about complexity in programming?

The goal of programming is to remove complexity and simplify, simplify, simplify. By doing so, it ensures that the final program runs more efficiently, smoother, and can be upgraded/modified by anyone easily in the future. If complexity is included, it can cause near limitless problems to both the original developer of the program and any other unfortunate person who attempts to work with it in the future.

3. What function do programming languages have?

Programming languages work to simplify the complexity and length of programs in a number of ways. Firstly, they give programers a way to interface with the machine in a human readable fashion. Secondly, they shorten the amount of tedious instructions a programer has to write when he writes out what he wants the machine to do by having the most monotonous, and heavily used groupings of operations simplified to a single word or easily understood phrase. The development of modern programming languages is what has allowed the software designers to more fully harness the raw power of machines in the form of the incredibly complex programs that Westerners are now almost entirely dependent upon.

4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

Javascript was developed right around the time Java was rapidly gaining in popularity, so the founders of JS decided to piggyback on the success of the Java name by naming their language Javascript in the hopes that it too could benefit from the increased attention paid to Java in 1995. Despite the name however, the 2 languages are incredibly different in functionality, syntax, underlying structure, and purpose. Because of the radical differences in design and usability, critics of the name choice have long complained over the unnecessary confusion it has burdened aspiring new programmers over the years. But due to the near universality of JS in the modern world, a name change at this point would cause far more damage to the development ecosystem as a whole than would leaving the JS brand untouched. Those frustrated with this issue would be better suited wasting their time complaining about something more realistically changeable.

5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?

It is just another name for Javascript created to help those during the early days of the language ensure that they were all referring to the same software language. ECMAscript was used by the international organization established to help ensure the JS protocols were standardized and understood by all those who integrated it into their systems.
