Coding Introduction People have been developing and building computers for over 70 years and in that time the languages that have been used to program computers have also been evolving. The different interfaces that are now being used and the programming environments are now more intuitive and natural making the automated processes become more logical CITATION Aca15 \l 1033 (Academic Rigour). The features of the programming language being used now reflect the applications that they were developed and are used for. There are different features between the languages used for different applications; for example what is needed to express different business processes techniques in data analysis and in a scientific equation would not be the similar to what will be needed to develop a computer video game. In the recent years especially since the year 2010 there has been a growing attention to the introduction of coding in schools market with those who are especially those who can create their own program. Coding is a very practical subject hence would be enjoyable for kids to learn in their classrooms and at the same time horning life-long skill that they will use when they get employed or start their own companies or businesses. It is therefore imperative that the central governments of different countries include coding to the main syllabus both in primary and secondary schools. Works Cited BIBLIOGRAPHY Academic Rigour.
