Computer programming or coding is the process of designing and building a computer program to perform and accomplish a specific task. The source code of a program is written in languages known to professional programmers, which is directly executed by the central processing unit (CPU). The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate the performance of a task. Coding is a part of this programming. It gives the ability to break down a problem in a structured form and design the solution for it.
Coding is the demand of the present and the future due to technological advancements, and such proficient programming requires expertise in several different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms, and formal logic.
Therefore, focus is being placed on learning coding at an early age to be prepared for a bright future. Online coding courses for kids are the new buzz, as more and more interactive ways of teaching are being implemented to make coding classes for kids as interesting as possible.
