What Is Programming?

Programming is a very natural and intuitive concept. A program is nothing more than a series of statements written in a specific language. Programs are everywhere, and even the technophobes of the world use programs every day. Driving directions, cooking recipes, football plays, and DNA are all types of programs. A typical program for driving directions might look something like this:

Start out down Main Street headed east. Continue on Main Street until you see
a church on your right. If the street is blocked because of construction, turn
right there at 15th Street, turn left on Pine Street, and then turn right on
16th Street. Otherwise, you can just continue and make a right on 16th Street.
Continue on 16th Street, and turn left onto Destination Road. Drive straight
down Destination Road for 5 miles, and then you'll see the house on the right.
The address is 743 Destination Road.
