In this article I will be discussing the various aspects of programming languages. Programming languages are a way for a computer to understand a programmer's instructions. There are many different types of programming languages and there is a lot of variation within each type.
Programming languages are extremely important to our society because they allow us to perform complex tasks without having to learn how to program computers directly. Writing programs using programming languages also allows large groups of people to work on the same project at once because everyone can work independently on separate parts of the project. Most people know what Microsoft Office is but ask them how it works and you will likely get a blank stare. It works because it uses a programming language called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) that only runs on Windows computers. As you can see you don't need to know how VBA works to use it. You can simply use it to create Microsoft Word documents or Excel spreadsheets. For more information on programming languages check out http://www.programminglanguagesguide.com/
