Introduction to Coding

What actually is coding? How does it work? Why we learn coding?

Introduction to Coding and Programming

Computer coding, also known as computer programming, is giving a computer instructions to tell it what to do.

Computer coding is mentioned a lot these days as a key digital skill and it is a great way to make computers do what you need them to do and create new and exciting things on them

Coding, sometimes called computer programming, is how we communicate with computers.

Electronic devices like cell phones, laptops, and tablets require code to function properly. Coding allows humans to communicate with these devices. Modern technology such as traffic lights, calculators, smart TVs, and cars use internal coding systems.

Code tells a computer what actions to take, and writing code is like creating a set of instructions.

Since computers do not communicate like humans, coding acts as a translator. Code converts human input into numerical sequences that computers understand.

By learning to write code, you can tell computers what to do or how to behave in a much faster way.

Computer programming languages, developed through a series of numerical or alphabetic codes, instruct machines to complete specific actions. Computer coding functions much like a manual.

The Process of compiled programming languages

A compiled language is a programming language whose implementations are typically compilers and not interpreters.

The Process of Interpreted programming languages

An interpreted language is a programming language whose implementations execute instructions directly and freely, without previously compiling a program into machine-language instructions.

Dynamic translation or run-time compilations

Just-in-time (JIT) compilation is a method of executing computer code that involves compilation during the execution of a program – at run time – rather than before execution.

Coding is another language.

Language teaches children how to communicate and teaches logical thinking. Language also strengthens both verbal and written skills.

Coding fosters creativity.

By experimenting, children learn and strengthen their brains. Even when they make a mistake, they learn. Children can be creative, and creativity is encouraged.

Coding improves writing academic performance.

Children who learn to code understand how to plan and organize thoughts. This can lead to better writing skills that can be built upon as coding skills develop over time.

Why Should Kids Learn Coding?

It's not just about the growing demand for programmers worldwide. The benefits of coding knowledge affect the very personality and mental state of children.
