  1. A computer program is a set of instructions that a cpu can recognize and execute.
  2. The complexity of a program should be kept as minimal as possible for better understanding of what the program is designed to do. The more complex a program becomes, the more difficult it is to understand and there are more possibilities for bugs.
  3. Programming languages bridge the last digital mile between people and computers.
    They provide the environment for taking human language and converting it into binary.
  4. They are totally unrelated programming languages.
  5. ECMAScript ~is~ JavaScript. Its name is derived from the organization that created and maintain the repository of standards to which Javascript conforms.

#485
  1. A program is a set of precise instructions telling a computer what to do.

2.Programming, it turns out, 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. You’re building your own maze, in a way, and you might just get lost in it.
The great program is subdued made simple in its complexity.

  1. A programming language is an artificially constructed language used to instruct computers and allows you to do things in seconds that would take forever by hand.

  2. There is no connection Java and JavaScript.

5.In practice, the terms ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably—they are two names for the same language.


#486
  1. A program is a set of unambigous instructions tellling computer what to do exactly.
  2. The complexity of the program should be kept under control otherwise it becomes very difficult to control the program for the creator himself.
  3. Programming language gives programmers a easy way to make computer work as per their needs without getting into low level details.
  4. There is no relationship between java and javascript except their names.
  5. A standard document was written for javascript which is known as ECMAscript.

#487
  1. What is a program?

A program consists of text that is constructed in such a way as to make the computer carry out instructions for the processing of data.

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?

It is best to keep complexity to a minimum. Keep the program as simple as possible.

  1. What function do programming languages have?

Programming languages provide syntax and tools to allow the programmer to create programs.

  1. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

There is very little in common between Java and Javascript other than a similar name. Java was popular at the time Javascript was introduced, so it appears that the name Javascript was a marketing decision.

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

ECMAScrypt is a description of a general-purpose programming language that was written to describe precisely how a JavaScript system should work.

Reading assignment – Programming

  1. A program is a text instructing a computer to do something specific. It is also the data in the computer memory, and actions and instructions that together make an operating function one types into the computer.

  2. Complexity in programming can be very challenging. It is important to control the complexity of a program so it is easier and faster to write and doesn’t go out of hand. That being said, too much restraining will result in less creativity.

  3. Programming languages have a function to help the programmer communicate with the computer on a high level and simplify the overall detail, enabling to construct logical and convenient building blocks to use.
    4. The relationship between Java and Javascript language is mostly by sharing the same(‘Java’) name.

    1. The ECMAScript is a document describing how the Javascript language should work, combining all the supporting pieces of software making the Javascript, and making sure they are speaking the same language. In other words, the ECMAScript is the standaard Javascript.

  3. A programming language is an artificially constructed language used to instruct computers.
  4. JavaScript has almost nothing to do with the programming language named Java.
  5. ECMAScript 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. In practice, the terms ECMAScript and JavaScript can be used interchangeably—they are two names for the same language.

#491

What is a program?
Is a set of instructions with code that tells a computer what to do. Just like a to-do list.

What can you say about complexity in programming?
A computer has the potential to do many things, simple and complex. What makes the computer shine is the ability to solve new problems, or add new features. Complexity does bring bugs and it requires a developer not only to solve problems from the concept, but also the program itself.

What function do programming languages have?
Programming languages have the ability to do tasks in a human readable language format. Unlike in the beginning where programming only involved 1’s and 0’s, we can now set values in wording format.

What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
Java and javascript aren’t related to each other, except for marketing reasons.

What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
ECMAScript and Javascript are two names of the same language. ECMAScript is a documentation that descibes the way Javascript should work and how different types of software that claims to run on Javascript should also run ECMAScript.


#492

1. What is a program?
A set of simple instructions given to a dumb computer so that it can appear intelligent by executing
them very fast. :slight_smile:

2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
Very easy to over complicate a program if its not organised properly and doesn’t adhere to programming guidelines and standards. The KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid) should be kept in mind when programming.

It’s like building your own maze, if you don’t keep track of where you are, you could suffer from ‘Spatial Disorientation’ (pilot speak).

3. What function do programming languages have?
To allow the user to provide instructions to a computer in a language that resembles the users own natural language as close as possible.

4. What is the relationship between Java and JavaScript?
Only a historical marketing connection. The Java language and the JavaScript language have no syntactical relationship or similarity apart from the name.

Dare I say its like similar to find a relationship between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash :slight_smile:

5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to JavaScript?
ECMAScript is a standard document describing how JavaScript should work.

  4. It’s the set of international standards set, when speaking of Javascript.

#495
  1. What is a program?
    A program is a set of instructions that make computer to do what the instructions define it does.
  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    A computer can do many things, in basic programming is just some basic rules, but it developer implement their own logic to it and rule it become complex and could introduce bugs that the developer does not foresee.
  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Able to translate readable human language and convert into 1’s and 0’s that is understood by machines.
  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    They are no related, is just during the raised of javascript, Java is heavily marketed therefore Javascript is to hitch Java hype.
  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    ECMAScript and Javascript are two names of the same language. ECMAScript is a documentation that descibes the way Javascript should work and how different types of software that claims to run on Javascript should also run ECMAScript.

1/. What is a program?
A program is an interface between a human and a computer. Its a set of precise instructions that tell the computer what to do.

2/. What can you say about complexity in programming?
Complexity in programming makes a program difficult to understand and can even make it burdensome to make less complex. Keeping programs under control is the main problem of programming. Writing elegant programs takes time and effort.

3/. What function do programming languages have?
They allow a programmer to write programs telling the computer what to do at a higher level.

4/. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
None. The Java programming language was gaining popularity at the same time and someone thought to capitalize on that popularity by incorporating the name Java thereby getting the name for this programming language JavaScript.

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

ECAMScript standardised and set how Javascript should work in the various programs that claimed to support it. Ecmascript and Javascript can be used interchangeably as they are two names for the same language.


#497

A program is a building of thought. The complexity has to do with readable and unreadable expressions. Java has nothing to do with JavaScript but the word itself became popular. Programming languages help the programmer express actions that the computer has to do on a higher level : making blocks easier to compose.ECMA Script standard is Java Script and is a document saying how JavaScript should work. It is making sure that the various software is actually supporting Java Script.


#498

1.) A program is text that instructs a computer to perform tasks, store files or access the memory.

2.) Complexity is the main problem in programming. The key is to balance creativity and functionality with simplicity.

3.) Programming languages allow human language to be translated to computer language.

4.) There is no significant relationship between the two.

5.) A published standardization of JavaScript.


#499
  1. What is a program?
    A program can be anything that applies logic to data.

let x = 1 + 2;
console.log(x);

  1. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    There is a very large range of how complex a program can be. Also how clean code is makes it much easier to read.

  2. What function do programming languages have?
    JavaScript is used to add functionality to web pages.

  3. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    Marketing

  4. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    Sets versions for JavaScript


#500
  1. It is a set of instructions that we - as a programmer - give the computer in order to have it act in a certain desirable way, to achieve an expected result.

  2. Fundamentally, programs are really simple commands, because the computer can be only so smart, incapable to understand more abstract thinking or commands. However, the complexity of the program design itself is only limited by the programmer’s ability to code.

  3. They help us communicate easier with the computer, as what is essentially binary language can become expressed through almost full-blown English, in the process also shedding some of the rudimental, uninteresting steps.

  4. None. One just rode the name hype of the other. Pretty much like an ICO that uses Bitcoin’s name.

  5. It is a standard document that makes sure the piece of software is compatible with Javascript language. Effectively, ECMAScript and Javascript have become interchangeble, meaning the same thing.


#501

1. What is a program?

A program is an overall piece of text of actions that tells a computer of what to do in high speeds. With the combined force of text actions being in ability to be processed at enormously fast rates by the computer allows for the program to perform complicated tasks.

It is said that a programs complexity is managed by following and using only in small scale a well known set of program techniques to follow by for successful program forms.

2. What can you say about complexity in programming?

Within programming its complexity is important to have under control. By having a simple controlled set of techniques used to manage the programs complexity with a strict set of rules to develop a successful program.

3. What function do programming languages have?

Programming languages allow for the function of the programs complexity of uninteresting details to become better readable with more “abstract means of expression.” (quotation from p. 5 line 39.)

4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

The relation between Java and Javascript is that JavaScript jumped on a marketing bandwagon during a certain time period to name the programming language alike to Java even though both have little to do with each other in structure as programming languages. JavaScript language was named during the same time period of that Java as a scripting language was being heavily marketed and obtaining popularity.

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

ECMAScript is a language with its origins based upon how a JavaScript should work. ECMAScript is described as a general purpose programming language of JavaScript. With several versions of JavaScript newer versions of JavaScript will be from extension of ECMAScript 3.


#502
  1. What is a program?
    Program is a set of instruction telling a computer what to do.

  2. What can you say about complexity in programming?
    fundamental rules of programming are simple and clear but programs built on top of these
    rules tend to become complex enough to introduce their own complexity.

  3. What function do programming languages have?
    Programming languages make it easier for for normal people to read and write programs. As binary way of writing is near to impossible.

  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?

    Many instructions you give to a computer are simple, but the ingenious combination of them leads to greater and greater complexity.
  3. What function do programming languages have?
    They offer an interface between human language and machine code – make giving instructions to computers more human-friendly
  4. What is the relationship between Java and Javascript?
    None really. JS just borrowed the Java name because it was a very popular programming language, and it just stuck
  5. What is ECMAScript and how is it related to Javascript?
    The technical name for JS is ECMAScript.
