Programming is a way to instruct the computer to perform diverse tasks.
You may ask, why do we even need programming? Why not directly do something with the hardware and stuff.
You see, computers only understand Binary that is 0's and 1's. Now, why Binary? Computers built with electronic components transmits data in the form of ON or OFF, hence binary. (in simple terms)
Coming back to the question, why do we even need programming? Imagine writing instructions to the computers just using 0's and 1's. Don't you think it would be tiresome work to do?
See, this is why we need programming languages. Programming languages allow us to write programs and perform tasks and also makes the programs human readable.
We, humans, communicate with each other using languages like Tamil, Hindi, English, French or any other language.
Similarly, we use programming languages like Python, Java, C++ or others to communicate with the computer.
