Introduction to Computer Programming and Types of Languages Available

A computer is a general purpose machines which can perform many computational task and the modern day computers that we have they can perform billions or trillions of calculations within a fraction of second.

These computer's they can't really do anything on their own. so for a computer to do something one has to give the instructions to it and these instructions will contain step by step information to perform a specific task and these are called as program.

The person who is going to write these instructions or the program is called as the "Programmer" and here the programmer will write the program and the computer will execute that or computer will work on that instructions.

The language in which the instructions are written or the language in which this program is written is called as the "Programming Language". There are several types of programming languages available.

Computers are built to understand the binary language / machine language and since it is difficult to code, assembly languages are invented. After that middle and higher level languages were invented.

program written in middle / higher language are converted to machine code and executed in either through the compilation method or by using the interpretation method.

languages which use compilation method are called as compiled languages. for example c, c++ etc.

languages which use interpretation method are called as interpreted languages. for example python
