  1. What is a program?
    A program is something that is written with specific code lines to make the computer do what it says to do.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    It is like learning a new language that has no similarity to your mother tongue. It looks hard in the begining but as long as you keep studying you will clear your thoughts. Basically the more complex is the task that you want to develop the more complex it gets to write.

  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Functions have the property to ease the comunication between man and machine.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    The name

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    They are both related to the same thing. JavaScripts and ECMAScript are the same language with two different names. JavaScript was named like this to be part of the hype that Java (Oracle) was having when it was lauched.

1- What is a program?

A program is a work or a set of works for a computer to get some results to be used on some other programs or to be used by people.

2-What can you say about complexity in programming?

If we are clear about what we want from the program we are writing, and we have the information about the many tools in the language we can use, programming should be easy enough.

3-What function do programming languages have?

They are instructions for computers which can be written by humans.

4-What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

Names are similar and they are both programming languages thats all. They have so little to do with each other.

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

ECMAScript is a standart of language design made by the Ecma International Organization. And JavaScript was also got standartized by this.

**What is a program?

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.

**What can you say about complexity in programming?

The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. The great program is subdued‚ÄĒmade simple in its complexity.

**What function do programming languages have?

A programming language is an artificially constructed language used to instruct computers. Like human languages, computer languages allow words and phrases to be combined in new ways, making it possible to express ever new concepts.

**What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

The language JavaScript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java. The similar name was inspired by marketing considerations rather than good judgment. When JavaScript was being introduced, the Java language was being heavily marketed and was gaining popularity. Someone thought it was a good idea to capitalise on this success.

**What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?

**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‚ÄĒthey are two names for the same language.**strong text

  1. it is a set of clear programs ( instruction docs written in high level or middle level or low level languages ) given to the CPU to perform a specified task

2)Complexity tells bout the space (size of the program) and time (speed of execution) to perform the the task mentioned in the instruction doc fed to the CPU.

  1. Programming languages are artificial constructed languages that tells the CPU what to perform and how to perform.

  2. Java is an OOP programming language while Java Script is an OOP scripting language.
    Java creates applications that run in a virtual machine or browser while JavaScript code is run on a browser only.
    Java code needs to be compiled while JavaScript code are all in text.

5)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‚ÄĒthey are two
names for the same language.

To talk about the actions the computers must do.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

It’s a similar name bu has nothing to do with Java

#451
  1. A program is set of precise instructions in the form of definitions and commands, telling a computer what to do.
  2. Programming can easily get complex. Though there’s more than one way to achieve a goal, having control over complexity results in a good program.
  3. Programming languages allow programmers to make human readable instructions to the computer.
  4. JavaScript has nothing to do with Java, except that the former rode on the marketing of the latter, LOL.
  5. ECMAScript is another term for JavaScript, as the Ecma International Organization standardized the way JavaScript should work in various pieces of software.

#452
  1. A set of rules that make it possible to make a computer do what you want or need.
  2. programs can become complex if they are not properly thought out and controlled. As the book states ‚ÄúThe art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity.‚ÄĚ However it is important to be able to ‚Äúthink outside the box‚ÄĚ too.
  3. Giving us the ability to ‚Äúcommunicate‚ÄĚ with the computer and have it do tasks we desire.
  4. There is no relationship between Java and Javascript except the name. Javascript was named to piggyback on the popularity of Java at the time when Javascript was introduced.
    5)ECMAScript is a standard document that was written after Javascript to describe the way Javascript should work.

#453
  1. What is a program

A piece of text/code which runs on a computer. Inputs are interpreted in the way the program is written and gives the executer outputs. The program lives in your computer’s memory and its correctness is specified in the interpreter or compiler of the programming language.

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?

Computers are actually really dumb but the are very fast in doing simple things which would take a very long time on paper. The complexity of a program can be broken down by smart programmers who try to write understandable and auditable code. Though the more functionality your program has the more complex it gets, for instance Javascript programs can be very complex but are also very easy to get started (possible to create runnable code in a short amount of time), so for Javascript programs should be written very clearly and structured to not get lost in complexity.

  1. What function do programming languages have?

They have the ability to do simple straightforward things at highspeed which can be combined to get really complex programs with high functionality.

4.What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

Actually there is no real connection between JavaScript and Java, at the time JavaScript was introduced for the Netscape browser as a programming language for webpages (to interact with them without reloading the page) Java was on the rise of popularity as the new convenient object-orientated programming language, the marketing team behind JavaScript just jumped on the bandwagon and called it language ‚ÄėJavaScript‚Äô.

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

ECMAScript is the formal Specification of JavaScript after this language became so popular in other browsers too. It was defined by the ECMA International Organization. So basically ECMAScript and javaScript can be interchangeably used.


#454
  1. Set of instructions to computer.
  2. Complexity is to be avoided, keep it simple. Use the kiss method.
  3. To communicate with the computer.
  4. There is no relationship between Java and Javascript except for the name.
  5. ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably‚ÄĒthey are two
    names for the same language.

#455
  1. Simply put a program is a set of instructions telling a computer what to do. These instructions are written in a language that we use to communicate that are then translated into binary for the machine to execute. The instructions are precise and need to follow a certain logic that a computer can follow because most machines do not come with common sense (at least not yet).

  2. Programming a set of instructions can become very complex very easily and it is considered good practice to keep things as simple as possible.

  3. Programs are expressed in binary which is made up of 1s and 0s. Programming languages allow humans to write down instructions and talk to computers, which are easy to understand and write for people and can be easily translated into binary for the computer to execute.

  4. They both have nothing to with each other. Java was named as a marketing technique to ride along with the success of Javascript.

  5. The ECMAScript is actually different name for the same language that Javascript refers to. ECMAScript was created as an attempt to standardise Javascript to create consensus on what formally constituted what Javascript was.


#456

What is a program?

  • A set of precise instructions telling a computer what to do.

What can you say about complexity in programming?

  • Programming is hard
  • The fundamental rules are simple and clear, but programs built on top of these rules tend to become complex enough to introduce their own rules and complexity.

What function do programming languages have?

  • They can take care of uninteresting details for us
  • Help the programmer by allowing them to talk about the actions that the computer has to perform on a higher level
  • Programming languages helps omit details, provides convenient building blocks, allows you to define your own building blocks and make those blocks easy to compose.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

  • Javascript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java.
  • The similar name was inspired by marketing considerations rather than good judgement.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?

  • The ECMAScript standard is a standard document that 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.
  • The terms ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably - they are two names for the same language.

#457
  1. What is a program?
    The action of commanding a computer to carry out a tasks through instructions relayed by text which produces desired results.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    Complexity is the result of poor programming best practices that make it complex to understand the code.

  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Computers use machine code of 1’s and 0’s to control hardware, due to the machine code note being human readable programming languages work as an intermediary resulting this barrier of communication and allow humans to interact with machines in a more readable format.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    There is no direct relationship based on code but rather that Javascript was named as such due to marketing intentions to be associated with Java’s popularity at the time.

  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    These are one and the same thing, ECMAScript was created as a standard to allow browsers of any kind to render scripting based on the original Javascript language.


#458

1.What is a program?
Program is a set of instructions that are given to the computer for it to execute

2.What can you say about complexity in programming?
Time to time programming can get very complex which can make it confusing, the key should be to keep it simple and readable.

3.What function do programming languages have?
It enables the programmers/humans to communicate about the actions that the computer has to perform on a higher level.

4.What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
It’s like the relationship between car and carpet. In other words, there are no similarities. The name Javascript was chosen by marketing reasons.

5.What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably, ECMAScript is a standard that defines the language


#459
  1. A program is a set of instructions. It’s an interface in which the computer gets input, process it and return an output.

  2. Programs should be restricted to some certain standards, otherwise, its complexity will increase and it may go out of hand.

  3. Programming Language are important because they serve as an easy interface between machine programing and human. It

  4. THere’s no relationship between Java and Javascript. The name was chosen to market Javascript, since JAVA was the hot-selling software product at the moment.

  5. ECMAScript is a set of standard guiding the use of Javascript. It releases new update for Javascript.

#461
  1. What is a program?

A program is a precise set of instructions that tells the computer, a incredibly pedantic machine that only understands binary language, what to do.

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?

According to the text, it’s incredibly frustrating at times. It depends on the language. Apparently, JS is a very liberally structured language and is hard to master, despite its prolific use. In general however, programming’s goal is to reduce the complexity in talking to a computer. However, doing so isn’t simple, and the rules needed often end up creating more rules in and of themselves.

  1. What function do programming languages have?

Programming languages are designed to shorten and simplify the process it takes to tell a computer what to do in binary. For example, instead of writing that 01001101111 = ‚Äúgo,‚ÄĚ a programming language will set it up so that one symbol like < or > or { or something, or even a mere word or letter, will represent that binary command.

  1. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

JAVA is a platform developed by Sun Microsystems Technologies which was later acquired by Ellison’s Oracle Corporation. JavaScript is merely a web development language that operates on JAVA, but the two are not developmentally related. JAVA runs other stuff like Python and C++ so it’s not exclusive either. It was more a name drop branding thing.

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

ECMAScript was basically a set of rules written to determine how JS should work, like a standardization protocol. JS used to only work on Netscape but now everyone uses it, and that’s because of the ECMAScript protocol. Now the terms can be used interchangeably because JS is a standardized language and is the standard when developing online apps.


#462
  1. A program is a set of instruction, that bring a set of logical answers, that will output a result
  2. Simpler is better
  3. Help to set the contact between human and machine
  4. Close to none
  5. ECMAscritp=Javascript=Set of rules to write in computer language

#463

Wow, looking at your answer, I feel like mine is really too simplistic!
