Programming: Be Not Afraid

Believe it or not, programming is a skill that not everyone understands. For some, getting the gist of programming is easy, but for other people, it can be challenging. Programming requires a lot of analysis and patience because one little error could destroy the rest of your codes.  


Alongside this, it can be confusing to read and comprehend especially for starters. It is why through time, computer scientists try to develop programming in such a way that it makes life easier for everyone and anyone. 


The Stigma 

Programming, in general, can be intimidating for a lot of people. People find coding hard because just looking at it can be confusing causing a stigma that it is not possible to comprehend. But that’s not true as we have a lot of industries and workers who continue to excel, and even get recognized, in their respective fields in the world of computer programming. 



We may not know it, but a lot of things that we get to interact in our daily lives use programming. Programming is used to make our computers work, to make software function, and to make a lot of things possible. Programming is also useful in the simple things we see online — the text, the sizes, the style, the images, almost everything. Without programming, we probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy the kind of leisure and entertainment we get now from technology, including social media.  


Programming 101 

For starters, programming consists of the programmer and the program itself. One has to work to develop a bunch of codes to make the system work. Some programmers believe that to be a successful programmer; you have to learn how to think differently, be analytical and critical in discovering ways to make the codes function and work. Though the concept might be easy, it absolutely can be challenging which is why programmers need to be fast-learners and patient.  



One of the main concepts primarily used in the world of coding is the term ‘generic programming.’ What exactly is generic programming?  


In a nutshell, generic programming is a type of computer programming which has algorithms that are ‘checked-later,’ specified and classified to different data types to be used as the parameters for the code. To put it simply, it’s like a group of different objects; a collection at that, which are listed in such a way that you can create a command or corresponding action afterward. 


The highlight of generic programs are it usually embodies the non-traditional kids of polymorphism, meaning the object can take on in many forms. It is essential to make programming look more general and adaptable so that it is easier to use, and so that it can be more beneficial. Hence, developers try to reinvent programming in such a way that it becomes flexible, convenient, and efficient.  


Benefits Of Programming 

What exactly can we learn from programming? Well first off, programming helps us communicate better. The art of programming is universal as people of different nationalities from all over the world can use it.  


To master programming, you can better analyze systems and various operations that happen even outside the computer world. Being able to understand programming, can hone people to be better communicators as well, even outside the fields of the programming language. 

 There’s a lot to what generic programming can do for us humans, and as the highest form of beings, we must use it for productive and responsible purposes. Using generic programming extensively will help clear out the stigma and can even give rise to more opportunities in this technologically advanced society.
