Definition - What does Programming mean?
Programming is the implementation of logic to facilitate specified computing operations and functionality. It occurs in one or more languages, which differ by application, domain and programming model.
Techopedia explains Programming
Programming language semantics and syntax are used when constructing an application. Thus, programming requires knowledge of application domains, algorithms and programming language expertise.
Programming language logic differs by developer. From a high level, good code can be evaluated with factors such as:
- Robustness: Focuses on program continuation capability, regardless of errors or incorrect data
- Reliability: Focuses on correct design and algorithm implementation
- Efficiency: Focuses on memory, hardware or other properties used to optimize programs
- Readability: Proper documentation and indentation availability, which provides insight to other program developers or designers
