Programming Reading Assignment


#364

1. What is a program?
A program is a bunch of code written in a language which can be compiled and converted to another language which the computer can understand (1&0’s), according to which it can follow instructions and function.

2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
Programming is complex, but programming languages make it easy to understand. The complexity is reduced by making the programming languages user friendly and at the same time it is understandable by the computer. The users are not required to type in binary code anymore because of the development of programming languages, which makes it less complex, but the effort and determination required to learn and execute the programming languages still is a challenge for every individual.

3. What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages are used to enter codes in the language which is easy for humans to understand and learn which inturn is converted into a binary format at the time of execution so that the computer can understand the code (in 1’s and 0’s). Because programming languages exist, we do not have to write in binary.

4. What is the relationship between Java and JavaScript?
Java is a whole another programming language which was developed at the same time as the JavaScript. The developers of Java, named it as java just because it would be easier to market it because of the popularity of JavaScript.

5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to JavaScript?
Both are the same thing and the terms JavaScript and ECMAScript can be used interchangeably.


#365
  1. A set of precise instructions that tell the computer to do what you want them to do.
  2. The fundamental rules of programming are clear and simple, but it tend to get complex without care a program size and complexity will grow out of control.
  3. 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.
  4. Javascript has almost nothing to do with the programming language Java, only marketing reason for the similar name.
  5. ECMA script is a standard that describes how Javascript should work. In practice the terms ECMA-, Javascript can be used interchangeably. Two names for the same language.

What is a program? - A text of instructions for the computer to interpret.

What can you say about complexity in programming? - You can have the same results through different programming languages. The readability of your code and depth of detail depends mostly on the language you are using.

What function do programming languages have? - Think of Lego. You have prefabricated blocks, which you can use to build amazing things;)

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? - The only thing is the name. Javascript only used the Java- word for market their own programming language due to Java-s popularity some years ago.

  1. What is a program?
    A set of precise instructions telling a computer what to do.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?

#371

What is a program?
A program is many things, a piece of text typed by a programmer., the directing force which makes a computer perform the way it performs. It is data inside the computer, it controls the actions performed on this memory.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
The computer program can grow out of control, becoming confusing as it grows in complexity, even for the programmer who created it. Managing the complexity is the art of programming.

What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages make writing programs easier and less tedious. Programming languages take care of the uninteresting details for us, allowing for us to express the same functions in more concise ways.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Maeketing tactic, nothing else.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
They are the same, ECMA is the name of the organization that standardized JavaScript.


#372

What is a program?
A program is a series of basic instructions that string together to form complex tasks to be executed on a computers processor. Computers excell at certain tasks because they can do them fast and repeat them over and over again perfectly.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
Computer programs become complex very easily and when writing computer code, one should strive to break up complexitiy into managable, less complex components.

What function do programming languages have?
They serve to give exact instructions for computer processors to execute. The computer is dumb but fast, so really exact instructions are necessary and these instructions are give in the form of a computer program written in a programming language.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Functionally none, Name wise Javascript used somewhat the popularity and brand recognition of Java at launch and has been stuck with this name ever since.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript? short answer, it is simply another name for Javascript.
Longer answer: it is derived from a standards document called the ECMAScript standard, after the Ecma International organization that did the standardization. This was undertaken when Javascript began to be adopted by browsers outside of Netscape that I assume was the first to adopt it.


#373
  1. A program is simply a collection of instruction that a programmer uses to get a computer to execute a specific task.
  2. Although the language and rules of a program can be learned in a reasonable of time, the assembly of the individual instructions that result can increase in complexity exponentially if we do not make a deliberate attempt to curb them.
  3. They allow us to give a specific series of instruction to a computer to achieve a specific task or collection of tasks.
  4. The only relationship is the word java. They are two distinct and independent languages.

4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript? They are different programming languages, their similar name was a marketing strategy to introduce JavaScript as Java was a popular language at the time.
5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript? ECMAScript is the standardization of JavaScript made it by the Ecma International organization. Actually, both terms can be used to talk about this programming language.


#376
  1. A set instructions for which calculations a computer shall do.
  2. While programming it’s hard to keep the code easy and not too complex. It’s easy to get lost in the complexity of the code we have written.
  3. A programming language makes it easier for humans to understand code. With it we can read letters instead of one’s and zeros .
  4. Creators of JavaScript thought java was a good language and wanted to piggyback of their success by choosing a similar name.

  1. A program is a set of precise instructions that tell a computer what to do.
  2. Be aware of the program size and complexity. Take constantly care of them, Follow the old strict rules but invent news too.
  3. It depends on the language. Some have very few and simple as add, or, or not etc and others very complex like block if and sum.
  4. JavaScript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java. The similar name was inspired by marketing considerations rather than good judgment.
  5. ECMAScript is a document that was written to describe the way the JavaScript language should work. In this way, 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.

#378
  1. A program is a set of instructions that dictate how a computer should behave when given a set of inputs (or without inputs for that matter).
  2. A program can, and often is, quite complex but whenever possible the code that makes up the program should be as simply structured as is feasable. Where possible the complexity of the program itself should be broken down to smaller components that handle parts of the whole.
  3. A programming language is a set of commands and rules which simplify the process of translating what the programmer wants done to binary code that the computer understands.
  4. Nothing except the word JAVA
  5. They are pretty much the same thing

#379
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions used to tell a computer what to do.

  2. Complexity in programming is like a maze, where the programmer has to take multiple concepts and to create their ideas and each program has it’s own rule.

  3. The function that programming languages have is to take care of the uninteresting details for the programmer and allow them to interact with the computer binary language.

  4. There is no relationship between Java and JavaScript other than the fact that the marketers of Javascript thought it would be a good idea to name the new programming language after Java.

  5. ECMAScript is a standard document that was written to describe the way JavaScript should work.


#380
  1. What is a program?
    A program is a set of instructions written in code for the computer to execute.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    That it is inevitable in more robust programs but also that you should always try to keep it as simple as possible and not let it grow out of control.

  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Basically a set of rules that we can use to create a program, understood by us humans, which is then converted to binary code so that the computer can execute our code.

4.What is the relationship between Java and Javascript.
All programming languages have similarities. if you know one language, you can understand the code of another. The relationship with Java and JavaScript is only commercial.
Java was back then established and very popular, the developers of JS simply used that wave of popularity to commercialize their language.

  1. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    ECMAScript is a standard put by ECMA standard orginazation. It is simply a standard to follow when coding. ECMAScript and JavaScript is basically the same thing, JS the name of the language and ECMA the name of the standard to follow.

#381
  1. A program, being many things, is a text-typed language used by programmers to get a computer to carry out tasks, solve problems; it is data stored in the computer’s memory.

2.Keeping programs simple and under control are key elements in writing a complex, yet, successful program. Considered an art, it is the foundation of a successful program and programmer.

  1. The functions of programming language are used in helping the programmer communicate needed actions, with the computer, on a efficient, high level.

  2. There is not relationship between Java and Javascript, other than a piggy back strategy for marketing the product.

5.Javascript was created first in 1995, then became the standardized language for other major browsers…ECMAScript. The two names can be used interchangeably.


#382
  1. What is a program?
    –> It is a language to communicate with the computer and control them to help human do some simple but boring tasks, such as some duplicate jobs.
  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    –> Programming has some time complexity and space complexity. For time complexity, it describe the amount of time that it takes to run a program. For space complexity, it describe the amount of space that it takes to run a program. In the big data world, the time complexity is important because it will run forever if the input size of data is very large and the time complexity is very large.
  3. What function do programming languages have?
    –> It has some common function, like calculating maths, connecting to database and manipulate it, receiving some get/post request and return some value, etc. But in the lowest level, computer only receive 1s and 0s, so in the CPU level, it handles some basic operation like add, subtract, multiple, divide, etc.
  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    –> Java is a object oriented programming that runs in JVM, and Javascript is also a object oriented programming, but it runs in browser. It is easier to learn Javascript than Java because it is more high level.
  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    –> I just hear this terms ECMAScript. It is the previous version of Javascript. Both of them are scripting language.
