Introduction to the Pseudocode translation into Real Code

Get an overview of what will be covered in this chapter.

We'll cover the following


The code examples in this course have, for the most part, been written using pseudocode, because the aim of this course is to give you an understanding of what programming is, rather than focusing on any particular language.

To be able to write code, you’ll need to use a real language. We’ll take a look at some of the more popular ones here and see how the code used in this course would translate into these languages.

The languages we’ll look at are as follows:

  • C++
  • C#
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • Python

For each language, we’ll start with a short introduction.

You won’t be able to start to write your very own programs just from these short examples, but you’ll get a feel for these languages, and maybe seeing them like this will help you decide what language you want to learn first.

Before we look at the different languages, we’ll have a couple of pseudocode examples. These examples will then be translated into the six languages mentioned above.
