What Is Coding?
Coding is a way to tell a computer what to do. It’s the process of creating instructions in a language a computer understands.
Think of coding as ‘talking’ to a computer to solve a problem or to make something, like a game or an app. The language we use to talk to the computer is the programming language, and the set of instructions is called a program, or the code.
Why Learn to Code?
Coding is a powerful tool. It allows you to express your creativity as you make your own apps, tools, and games. Coding allows artists and makers to create art and make wonderful objects that are only possible with code.
Learning to code helps you understand the digital world around you. The world today runs on code, from apps on a smartphone, to online shopping websites, to automated teller machines (ATMs). Since computing has had an impact on virtually every industry, understanding code will better prepare you for any kind of job.
Coding involves problem solving. Writing code requires you to break down a problem into steps, use math and logic to develop a solution, and then test and make changes to solve the problem. Learning to code engages students of all ages and helps them learn math, science, language, and more. Coding is a powerful way to learn everything else.
Why Python? 1 It’s easy to learn and use. 2 It’s simple and powerful. Just a few lines of code are needed to do many tasks. 3 Because it’s free and open source-which means the original source code is freely available and may be redistributed and modified by anyone for any purpose- it’s been used in a wide variety of applications. 4 It runs anywhere, including Windows, Macs, Linux, and Raspberry Pi.
