Principles of Programming & Coding
Provides students and researchers with an easy-to-understand introduction to the fundamentals of programming and coding.

This new volume makes sense of the jumble of techno-jargon and programming acronyms for high school and undergraduate students, whether their interest is making their smart phones work more smoothly, web development, or application development. Computer programming. Computer programming and coding depends on the use of general  programming languages and powerful algorithms. Software applications are finding their ways into an increasing number of areas that affect our daily lives, from communications to commerce. This set contains over 120 entries on the fundamental concepts of this important science.

More than 125 entries explain the fundamental concepts, popular languages, systems, and protocols that go into computer programming and coding. Coverage includes: 

  • Application Programming Interface (API)
  • Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
  • General Purpose Programming languages
  • Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML)
  • Pseudocoding
  • Top-Down-Design
  • Variables
  • Yoda Coding

These informative entries provide clear definitions, examples of real-world applications of the principle or concept, and look at the future of programming and coding. This new volume will be a must-have resource for high school and undergraduate libraries as a support for students engaged in STEM studies as well as for general readers.
