how does programming started
Programming is like giving instructions to a computer. It started by telling computers what to do with a bunch of switches, like a light switch. People would have to flip the switches in a specific order to make the computer do something. Nowadays, programming is much more advanced. People write code instead of flipping switches. They use different programming languages to write their code. Programming languages are like English sentences, but they use symbols and numbers instead of words. To give you an example, you can think of a computer game. To make the game, someone needs to write code so the computer knows what to do. The code might tell the computer to draw a graphic on the screen or to make the game character move. Fun Fact: The first computer game was called Pong and it was released in 1972!
