The Structure of a Program

What's the difference between a declaration and a definition? What is a translation unit, and how is it related to the source code that you write? How would you describe the one-definition rule? What is name-mangling?

If the answers to these questions are a little hazy for you, or if you would like a refresher on the fundamentals of how source code is converted into executable programs, then this talk is for you.

In this session, we'll cover the process of compiling and linking C++ source code, describing and discussing the key concepts involved in that process along the way. Attendees will leave with a basic understanding of such fundamental concepts as translation units, declarations, definitions, the one-definition rule, name-mangling, ABIs, and how the compiler and linker conspire to convert human-readable source code into binary code that executes on hardware.

The Structure of a Program

Coding 101: Programming Language Building Blocks

This article will introduce the concepts and topics common to all programming languages, that beginners and experts must know!

Do you want to learn a programming language for the first time?

Do you want to improve as a Programmer?

Well, then you’re in the right place to start. Learn any programming language without difficulty by learning the concepts and topics common to all programming languages.

Let me start by answering the following questions:

  • Why learn Programming?
  • What is Programming?
  • How to Learn a Programming Language?

Why learn Programming❔

Programming develops creative thinking

Programmers solve a problem by breaking it down into workable pieces to understand it better. When you start learning to program, you develop the habit of working your way out in a very structured format. You analyze the problem and start thinking logically and this gives rise to more creative solutions you’ve ever given.

Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.

_– _Stephen Hawking

Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer… because it teaches you how to think.

_- _Steve Jobs

Programming Provides Life-Changing Experiences

Programming always provides you with a new challenge to take risks every time and that teaches you to take risks in your personal life too. The world is filled up with websites, apps, software and when you build these yourself you’ll feel more confident. When a programmer solves a problem that no one has ever solved before it becomes a life-changing experience for them.

What is Programming🤔?

program is a set of instructions to perform a task on a computer.

Programming is the process of designing and building an executable computer program to accomplish a specific task.

Well, according to me programming is like raising a baby. We provide knowledge (data) to help understand a baby what’s happening around. We teach a baby to be disciplined (and much more) by making rules.

Similarly, a computer is like a baby. We set rules and provide data to the computer through executable programs with the help of a Programming Language.

That’s it👍. If you can understand this basic concept of programming, you’re good to go. Pick up a programming language and start learning. Read the following section to get an idea of where to start.

My recommendation is to choose Python Programming Language as a start, because it’s beginner-friendly.

Introduction to Structured Query Language SQL pdf

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is a scripting language expected to store, control, and inquiry information put away in social databases. The main manifestation of SQL showed up in 1974, when a gathering in IBM built up the principal model of a social database. The primary business social database was discharged by Relational Software later turning out to be Oracle.

Models for SQL exist. In any case, the SQL that can be utilized on every last one of the major RDBMS today is in various flavors. This is because of two reasons:

1. The SQL order standard is genuinely intricate, and it isn’t handy to actualize the whole standard.

2. Every database seller needs an approach to separate its item from others.

Right now, contrasts are noted where fitting.

Which Python Data Structure Should You Use?

Lists, tuples, sets, dictionaries… When do you use which built-in data structure?

Python is an object-oriented programming (OOP) language. Classes and objects are used to structure and modularize code to be reusable and easy to modify. OOP requires the use of data structures to organize and store data in a way that can be efficiently accessed.

Python has primitive (or basic) data structures such as floats, integers, strings, and Booleans. Python also has non-primitive data structures such as lists, tuples, dictionaries, and sets. Non-primitive data structures store a collection of values in various formats rather than a single value. Some can hold data structures within the data structure, creating depth and complexity in data storage capabilities.

In this article, we will look into each built-in data structure decide when it is appropriate to use one over another.

Programming In Acceleration: Levelling Up Programming Skills

Some require and some are not. But acceleration programs might require you to build one. I’ll tell you how I made a computer program for the competition.

1-Researched the source codes and pasted it on my VS code

Written on the internet “blockchain-based ticket codes” and found the Ethereum source codes in Github. Then, I’ve just copied and pasted on my VS code by naming with .sol extension. Then, I’ve got my hands on the code itself and started to correct the mistakes that the editor has shown so far. Managed to reduce 189 errors to 58 within two hours. The rest was handled by my teammate when I sent the code I’ve edited. He just fixed the codes in three more hours and my mistake was not to increase the gas price. We increased the gas price on the remix and everything worked. And he just tested the software on scalability and security. It was the perfect garment for us that everything worked except the indentation errors.

What should’ve been done by us

Found all the codes including testing, copied them, and pasted them to our text editor for further analysis. Still, we had the prototype and we could write all the test codes, migrations, etc. if needed. Even more, we should’ve researched the codes to our project before using one of the examples.

Learning C: Input and Output and Two Program Templates

Before I get too deep into C, I need to show you how to get data into and out of your programs. Using assignment for data gets old after a while and you want to be able to have users enter their own data. And you definitely need to be able to see what happens to your data in a program so learning how to display data to the screen is important and necessary.

Besides demonstrating how to perform input and output in C, I will also be demonstrating two templates that are related to those topics — Prompt, Then Read and Input, Process, Output (IPO). The IPO template, in particular, is important because practically every C program you write will use this template.

When I talk about input and output in C, I’ll use the terms standard input and standard output. These terms refer to the default input and output devices on your computer. The standard input device is the keyboard. The standard output device is the computer’s monitor or screen. I will only use the terms input and output and when I use those terms I’m referring to standard input and standard output. If I want to refer to a different device for input and/or output, I’ll use the specific term for that device.
