If you remember, we have the char data type, which is used to store a single character inside a char variable. Sometimes, we need to manipulate… Continue reading Programming basics: what are strings ?
Welcome reader, This blog post will cover the use of loops. Loops are used to repeat the same operation(s) at least once. Usually, most programs you can think of will need this kind of functionnality. We can use loops to go through data or let a program start from the start, they can even be… Continue reading Programming basics : Using loops
Welcome reader, This will be the final part in the programming basics mini series in how to manage the program flow of your software application. We're going to see how to manage the flow of your program when we're using a switch. It is a structure that is mostly use when we have predefined conditions.When… Continue reading Programming basics : manage program flow final part
Welcome reader, We'll pick up where we left with how to manage the program flow of a software application. We saw how to use the if-else if-else structure. To evaluate a condition, we need comparaison operators. Those are use evaluate a boolean expression, which will either result a true or false. Below, you'll be able… Continue reading Programming basics: manage program flow part two
Welcome reader, Our journey into programming began with the use of variables, how to name and how to store data in them. Programming goes a bit further than this. When you tell your machine to perform a given operation, sometimes, you want to check a state or a condition before your console application performs the… Continue reading Programming basics: manage program flow part one
Welcome reader, We haven't create an application since the start of the programming basics. It is sort of a ritual that the first program that a programmer writes will print of the screen the following : "Hello World!". So, we are actually going to write this as our first console application. Open your IDE and… Continue reading Programming basics: My first console application
Welcome reader, We'll follow where we left off when we've talked about variables. When you are behind you screen, there is a lot more going on then just writing lines in the IDE to make you computer do something. There are a set of rules that you should always stick to make your code clearer. Before,… Continue reading Programming basics: naming convention, indent and white spaces
