Sample text

More and more people will use computers for more and more tasks, and computers will be networked to other computers. What this means to the programmer is twofold. First, as more people use computers, more programmers are needed to write the programs for the computers. Second, as computers get more powerful and faster, older uses of computers (and therefore, older programs) have to be updated to take advantage of the new hardware. Tip How fast is fast enough? Will there be a day when computers do not have to go any faster?

The cost, size, and energy requirements kept first-generation computers out of the hands of most organizations. It was not until the second generation came along that more people began using them and learning about computing possibilities. The Second Generation First-generation computers were replaced by the second generation in the late 1950s. Second-generation computers used transistors. If you have ever seen the inside of a transistor radio, you may have seen the little colored parts, some of which are transistors.

Once you learn to program, however, the actual programming process takes less time than the design if your design is accurate and complete. The nature of programming requires that you learn some new skills. The Program Language One important step has been left out of this book so far. That is the step of learning the language itself. The rest of this book is devoted to describing the various programming languages available. It also introduces you to a popular programming language named Visual Basic.
