How can it be used?
There are many different programming languages that can be used. Ava, C, C++ are considered to be very high level languages and are usually easily read with simpler formatting though it will still take some getting used to. Other languages are the very popular HTML whish is a formatting language and PHP used for web scripting. The processes here are slightly different but at the end of the day all the language is broken down by the computer into a code so that it can be understood.
Programming has many uses, from simple website design and formatting to creating interactive sites with advanced content or even simply creating apps. Each of these uses have specific programmes that are more adept at creating these different areas.
