Coding for Beginners Vol 29
Get Started with Python
The world of programming is vast and confusing at the best of times, so we’re here to help you find your way through the labyrinthine coding universe. Python is the ideal programming language to start learning. It’s used throughout the Internet, in businesses and education. It’s easy to understand, powerful to use and has a vast online community. We look at how you get started with Python and what you need to begin to become a Python programmer.
Understanding and Using C++
C++ is one of the most powerful, high performance programming languages you can learn. Web browsers, games, applications and even entire operating systems are coded using C++; this makes understanding it a highly sought after skill to have. Where to begin though? We look at how you get started with C++ on Windows, macOS and Linux, and from entering a few lines of code for having something appear on your screen through to data types and user interaction.
Learn to Code on Linux
Linux is an open source operating system that is a superb foundation for programmers to build on. It’s free to download, install and use and with it you can use all the popular and mainstream programming languages. With Linux scripting you can create useful, everyday programs. By using the Bash Shell in Linux, you can create scripts to interact with the entire system and its users, as well as any Python or C++ code you’ve already created.
Understanding Windows Batch Files
Windows batch files are a fun and great way to learn the basics of programming. A batch file can interact with the operating system to create custom backup routines, help a user search for files stored within the hard drive or even be used to create a game. Just like Linux scripting, a Windows batch file can interact with your existing Python and C++ code too. Interested? Open the pages and read on to find out more.
