The Coding Point



Introduction to Coding

What is Coding ?

You’ve seen the craze for learning code. But what exactly is coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create Computer Software, Mobile Applications and Websites. Most of the Web Browsers,OS(Operating System), apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website – they’re all made through code.

Here’s a simple example of code, written in the Python language:

print 'Hello, world!'


Many coding tutorials use that command as their very first example, because it’s one of the simplest examples of code you can have – it ‘prints’ (displays) the text ‘Hello, world!’ onto the screen.


New to Coding ?


If you don’t know the first thing about coding, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a beginner’s tutorial which will give you all the background information you need on coding, before you start learning it for real.


It starts with an explanation on the benefits of learning coding. In our this website you’ll find out what you’ll be able to do once you know how to work with code. Then, you’ll get a deeper understanding of how coding works, and how the code you write gets converted into an instruction that a computer can ‘understand’. Very satisfying to know!


That’s followed by an outline of today’s coding languages. After all, every language has a purpose – some are for the web, others for app development, others for desktop software. You’ll find out why web development is an ideal form of coding to start off with, and then get a full overview of it. You’ll also be introduced to web design and app development.

Finally – and most importantly – there’s a step-by-step action plan that will outline the fastest and easiest way to get started in coding, and become a coder in few months.
