What is meant by a syntax in Programming? Every programming language comes with its own set of rules that outline the grammar and spelling within which it operates. This is called the syntax of a programming language. The syntax specifies the exact combination of symbols and characters that you can use to write code in a chosen language that will be understood by the computer. Continue reading
Here’s what you need to know about the compiler vs. interpreter choices you’ll need to make. By now, you already know that source code needs to be converted into machine code before it can be run by the computer. This is because at its most basic level, a computer can only understand strings of numbers that specify different operational codes. Writing code at this most basic level can get ridiculously complicated, and so today we use programming languages to make our nerdy little lives a lot easier.
But before you jump into the actual programming, you’ll first need to learn about the difference between compiler and interpreter.
Source code is simply the list of instructions you write for the computer to execute. It’s important to remember that source code is always written in plain text (never rich text). You can start writing code just by using a simple text editor like Notepad or TextEdit that’s already on your machine.
Let’s learn all about computer programming for beginners – Study the basic concepts and elements of programming on any platform using any language. Explore the different uses of different languages and learn how to decide on the right language for a given task. . Work with common processes such as loops, variables, conditions and memory. Familiarize yourself with the flow of a program and its structure. while exploring the dynamics of the program behind the scenes.
Python dictionary is an easy to use data structure. In the previous tutorial I covered creating, setting values, deleting values and checking existence of a key. For this tutorial I am going to cover how to access keys, values and items, how to use dictionary comprehension and many more.
Python 3 dictionary is a versatile and easy to use hash-map implementation. It is simply a built-in data type that you can hack upon.
Python 3 sequence slicing is a pythonic way of accessing a portion of a sequence. Slicing copies, the selected data to a new sequence of same type (Shallow copy).
Major python 3 sequence types are str, bytes, bytearray, list, tuple and range. This tutorial focuses on how to create and access sequences.
Python 3 while loop is very easy to use. Syntax is simpler than for loop and its usages are limitless.
One of my favorite books on coding is Clean Code by Robert C. Martin. Here’s one of the most important concepts that caught my eye: Readable code is important. You need to write code for people and not for machines. So what does reading good code have anything to do with writing it? Let’s find out.
