Programming Reading Assignment


#323
  1. What is a program?
    A set of instructions not necessarily written in human language that when translated into machine language a computer will perform.
  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    In coding complexity is unavoidable but should be kept to a minimum for readability and usability. Following proper programming practices will help to mitigate unnecessary complexity but the ability to program abstractly will inevitably introduce it.
  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Allowing people to use their language to instruct machines in their language.
  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    They were developed independently and not directly related languages. JavaScript was introduced during the time Java had already been widely gaining acceptance and adopted part of its name for promotion reasons.
  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    ECMAScript is a combination of the rules and guidelines developed for the continued standardizing the language. It’s also the official name, Javascript is the promoted name; the two are interchangeable.

  1. A program is a list of statements. It is text typed by the programmer that controls a computers actions.

  2. Complexity in programming is not always a good thing. The more simply a program is written, the better.

  3. Programming languages function as a means to help the programmer have a more abstract way of expressing themselves instead of writing code in binary.

  4. Javascript has very little to do with the programming language Java. It was given the name through a marketing ploy which really was very much unrelated.

  5. ECMAScript is the name of a language described in a document which was written to relay precisely how a Javascript system should work. It was given the name after the organization that standardized the language.

1,A program is the way to instruct a computer what you want it to do.
2.Programming is hard to do, the basic rules mite seem easy and simple, but the more functions and code
you put in a program the harder it becomes to let the program run smoothly. Its quit easy to get lost in you’re own code.
3. Its function is to direct the computer to do what you want it to do, its the behavior you give a computer how to act, it is data but is also performs actions.
4.Nothing really only for marketing reasons JavaScript has the name java in it, java was gaining popularity so they thought it was a good idea to run whit it.
5.ECMAScript is a standard document written to describe the way that javascript should work, actually ECMAScript & Javascript are the same language.


#326
  1. A set of instructions given to and executed by a computer
  2. Programmes can become very complex. Keeping the complexity under control is the goal
  3. They allow the user to communicate a set of instructions to the computer in a way that is understandable
  4. No relationship
  5. ECMAScript is a standardization of the rules of Javascript. Both names describe the same language and can be used interchangeably.

Reading assignment - Programming

  1. What is a program?
    A program is a set of instructions that tells the computer what to do.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    Programming often get complex and hard to manage, its therefor of great importance to program in such a way that the code is simple in its complexity.

  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Programming languages provides a program of instructions to perform ridiculous simple tasks/instructions with could build complex structures with could bring solutions of problems taking for ever by humans in just a few seconds.

    The programming languages by them self lets us humans in stead of coding in bytes (computer language) make code in a defined language more alike of our human language and way of thinking, thereafter using a compiler which translate the programming language into simple machine code(bytes, computer language).

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    There is not a real connection between Java and Javascript! Java is an own programming language as for Javascript is its own language for adding programs to web sites. The names are similar due to the choice of language of the marketing of Javascript to ride the wave of the increased populatity of the Java language in 1995 when Javascript were launched.

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    ECMAScript is just an stardarization of the Javascript done by Ecma International organization. This was done to align programmers use, and different browsers use of Javascript so that issues and problems of using programs on different browsers etc could be solved and avoided. As for today ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably


#328
  1. A program consists of many things. It is text typed by the programmer, data in the computer’s memory, and it even controls the actions performed on this data.
  2. Programs are an amalgamation of simple instructions, which may be combined in many ways to create complex programs which solve complex problems. Without care, this can become a problem.
  3. Programming languages are created to make it easier to code a program in a human-readable form, as opposed to machine code (1’s and 0’s)
  4. There is no relationship between Java and JavaScript, apart from a marketing decision back in the 90’s to gain more traction for JavaScript.
  5. ECMAScript and JavaScript are interchangeable terms. The ECMA International Organization standardized JavaScript

#329
  1. 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
  2. memory.
  3. The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. The great program is subdued made simple in
    its complexity.
  4. 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.
  5. JavaScript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java. The similar name was
    inspired by marketing considerations rather than good judgment.
  6. ECMA is a standard document which was written to describe the way the JavaScript language should work

#330
  1. text created by programmers. Set of instructions to run on a computer.
  2. created by humans, it can get complex as the program lenght is increasing.
  3. make it more readable by humans
  4. Almost no relationship
  5. Same name for both

#331
  1. What is a program? A program is a building of a thought. This thought is communicated from the programmer to the computer via text that instructs the computer what to do.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming? - It can fall across the spectrum to very simple to
    extremely complex. Each programmer can take different approaches to address existing or new problems.

  3. What function do programming languages have? - They can take care of uninteresting details for us. It allows the programmer to talk about actions that the computer has to perform on a higher level.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and JavaScript? - JavaScript has almost nothing at all to do with Java. The similar name was inspired by marketing considerations attempting to ride onto the success of JavaScript.

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to JavaScript? - A document creating the standardization of JavaScript rules so that various pieces of software actually talk the same language. They can be used interchangeably.


#332
  1. A set of instructions to be executed by a computer.
  2. A programmer can easily make a program complex, but ideally he/she would apply techniques to reduce complexity.
  3. They enable a programmer to give abstract instructions to a computer, which are translated into machine code behind the scenes before execution.
  4. It has nothing to do with each other except using the same name Java. JavaScript came later to add programs to web pages.
  5. It is two names for the same language. The ECMAScript is the standard describing the JavaScript language independently.

What is a program? is the act of constructing a program—a set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to do. Because computers are dumb, pedantic beasts, programming is fundamentally tedious and frustrating.

What can you say about complexity in programming?But without care, a program’s size and complexity will grow out of control, confusing even the person who created it. Keeping programs under control is the main problem of programming. When a program works, it is beautiful. The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. The great program is subdued—made simple in its complexity.

What function do programming languages have? they can take care of uninteresting details for us.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.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? they have nothing to do with each other, similar name was given only because of marketing purposes

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?it is just the other name for javascript


#334

1 What is a program?
A: A list of introductions the computer should perform

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    A; The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity.
    One needs to take care to keep tight controls/ rules of thumb and restrictions in place to not get lost in the complexity when programming. The great program is made simple in its complexity.

3 What function do programming languages have?
A: It allows the programmer to ‘talk the actions’ to the computer and instructions it should follow.

  1. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    A: JavaScript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java.

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


#335

1
A set of precise instuctions, that tells the computer what to do

2
The more code you add, the more compex it becomes. Becoming a maze, thet can be difficult to se a way out of.

3
To make it easier and more readable

4
similar name inspired by marketing considerations, rather than good judgement

5
They are two names for the same language


#336

What is a program?
A program is a set of instructions to computers for them to know what to do.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
A computer can do more if given more instructions in a program. But size almost always involves complexity. Complexity confuses programmers. A confused programmer makes mistakes and then the computer can’t do things. Therefore, keeping the complexity of scaling programs under control is the main problem of programming. A great program is made simple in its complexity.

What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages enable communication between humans and computers.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Java and JavaScript is not the same thing.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
ECMAScript is a almost the same thing as javaScript.


#337

What is a program?
A program is a set of instructions for the computer to execute.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
Fundamental rules in programming are concise, but programs built upon these rules tend to become complex enough to introduce their own rules and comlexity.

What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages instruct computer to to perform tasks.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
The person naming JavaScript wanted to ride on the coattail of Java when Java was gaining in popularity from marketing. There is no relation other than the name.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
ECMAScript is a standard document written to describe how JavaScript should work, and is interchangeably used with the name JavaScript.

  1. It is a set-up of instructions for the computer to follow(run).

  2. Programming is a pretty straight forward way to communicate with the computer but the complexity comes when you are combining all of the simple ways in many different ways to get a specific result.

  3. They communicate with the computer in “wordform” instead of “byteforms” (with ones and zeros). The words are being converted or “translated” into this type of “byteform” and gets interpreted by the computer into doing the task it tells the computer to do.

  4. It is the same relationship as Javascript and C++ or C++ and Java. It is two different programming languages. They have nothing to do with eachother.

  5. They use the same standards and it is the same language but with two different names only.


#343

What is a program? A program is a set of instructions which make the computer and its memory perform certain tasks with data.
