Presentation Transcript
  • A computer program (i.e. powerpoint) is really just a set of instructions, a code, telling your computer what to do when.
  • These programs can be really easy, or super complex. They are written in a computer language code.
  • Programs help your computer know what to do. A program for your computer is like creating an outline before a big paper, it helps keep you in order.
  • These programs need to be properly maintained to ensure their constant success.
  • There are many steps to designing a program..
  • Set & Review goals:  What is it supposed to do?
  • Design:  Create the strategy to achieve goal.
  • Coding:  Write the program.
  • Testing:  Try it out with real people.
  • Documentation:  What you did and why. How to use it.

Sample Program
  • Using old microsoft technology (BASIC) I have created my own sample program.

10 INPUT "What is your name: "; U$

20 PRINT "Hello "; U$

30 REM

40 PRINT "Goodbye "; U$

  • This program will ask your name, say hello, and then say goodbye.
