What is coding?

Coding, also referred to as programming, is the art of communicating with the computers, i.e. telling the computer what to do, and how to do it. This skill of communicating with the computers can be used to do some very cool stuff such as creating websites, apps, games, and tools that are in use every day.

The first forms of computers were invented to help us with basic calculations and accelerate the rate at which we could do heavy computation.

It's a language!

 Humans speak in different languages such as English, Hindi, Tamil, etc. But computers, on the other hand, speak in binary - 0 and 1.

Here's an example. The notation of the first three letters of the English alphabet in binary is as follows:

A = 01000001

• B-01000010

• C-01000011

To instruct the computer what to do, we need a translator that can act as an intermediary. This intermediary is the code. Code is a form of writing that is not binary, but is easy to learn and interpret, and is something the computer can understand. Depending on the requirement, this is done through programming languages. For instance, languages such as HTML CSS and Javascript are used for building websites while Java Kotlin, CB, etc are used for building mobile apps

What is software?

Software is a set of instructions data or programs used to operate computers and execute specific tasks. It essentially directs all of the peripheral devices on the computer what exactly to do and how exactly to perform a task.Software development is the connection to the Internet, process of understanding business Examples of web browsers include requirements, or the problem Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox statement and writing program(s). It is generally a planned initiative that consists of various steps or stages that result and Internet Explorer in the creation of operational software This is primarily achieved through computer programming, which is carried out by a software programmer and includes processes such as initial research, data flow design process flow design, flow charts technical documentation, software testing, and debugging. Here's an example. A browser is a software that accesses and displays pages and files on the Web. Browsers require a connection to the Internet. Examples of web browsers include Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
