Transcript of The Five Steps of Computer Programming

Step 1:
Identify the Problem
First you want to figure out what it is that you're trying to solve
-You need to make a list of the requirements you'll need to accomplish this task and the specifications of the program you will be using
Step 2:
Design the Solution
-You need to plan out how you're going to solve this problem
-The most commonly used design method is call the
Top-Down Design Method
-There are many ways to create an algorithm to help you like psuedocodes or flowcharts

Step 3:
Write the Program
-First you must choose the correct programming language that best fits the needs of your solution
-Remember to follow good programming style

Step 5:
Documentation and Maintenance
Step 4:
Test the Program
-Testing must be done to ensure your program is functioning properly
-There are 3 main steps:
- this ensures that the program works and everything is coded properly
Logic Errors
- this ensures that what happens in the program makes sense (just because something functions doesn't mean it will make sense)
Beta Testing
- apply real-world variables to make sure the program can handle normal circumstances

The Five Steps of Computer Programming
Use Documentation to make sure that anyone using your program is adhering to how it works and the rules that revolve around it
