Introduction

The Fundamentals of Software Programming module provides you with the instructions and devices to develop your hands on skills in the following topics

  • Using different data types
  • Demonstrating the difference between compiled and interpreted languages

Exercise 1 - Using Different Data Types

In this exercise, you will use different data types in a console application. You will use Visual Studio 2013 as the integrated development environment (IDE) to demonstrate the tasks in this exercise.

Exercise 2 - Demonstrate Difference between Compiled and Interpreted Languages

In this exercise, you will demonstrate the difference between a compiled and an interpreted language. A compiler reads the entire code and transforms the source code into machine language for processing. An interpreter reads each line at a time and converts it into machine language for processing.
