The Complete Coding Manual Vol 21
Python is, without a doubt, the most popular programming language with which to begin learning to code. Not only is it easy to understand and follow, but it’s also quick to achieve great results, and it’s astonishingly powerful too. We’re using Python 3, the latest version of the language. With it, you’re able to create everyday useful software, graphical games, text adventures and interactive programs for use at home or work.
C++ is one of the most powerful, high-performing and efficient programming languages you can learn. It’s used to code and create web browsers, games, applications, and even entire operating systems; which makes understanding it a highly sought after skill to have. Where do you begin, though? We look at how to get started with C++ on Windows, macOS and Linux; from entering a few lines of code to produce something on your screen, through to data types and user interaction.
Windows 10’s command line programming comes in the form of batch files. These easy to learn scripts can be powerful enough to help automate tasks, back up your important files and even create games. Batch files are used by Microsoft system administrators the world over, as a stepping stone on to more powerful scripting languages such as PowerShell, or even into Python and C++. Learning how to create a batch file will help you get more from your Windows PC.
