Data Train Starter Track: Programming languages
Programming is the essential tool for managing data sets and conducting data science methods. It is crucial for
- documentation work
- data preparation
- quality control of data sets
- data analyses
- transforming data into graphics
and makes handling of even big data sets possible.
- What actually is a programming language? What characterizes a programming language and what is it for?
- Why is HTLM not a programming language and what has Turing to do with it?
Approximately 700 programming languages exist – how to keep an overview? We learn to distinguish languages from their degree of abstraction and programming paradigm (imperative, procedural, object-oriented, functional, logical, …) or their area of application. Further, we talk about which programming languages you should know and some of them are briefly presented in this course.
Overview about programming languages, their features, significance and criteria for distinction.
