Mikä Computer Programming?
(provided by Augusto Duenas)
Today, most people don’t need to know how a computer works. Most people
can simply turn on a computer or a mobile phone and point at some little
graphical object on the display, click a button or swipe a finger or two, and
the computer does something. An example would be to get weather information
from the net and display it. How to interact with a computer program is all
the average person needs to know.
But, since you are going to learn how to write computer programs, you need to
know a little bit about how a computer works. Your job will be to instruct
the computer to do things.
