Hey all! I'm Kelvin 17 y.o and I have just started my Diploma in Computer Science. Yesterday my lecturer asked me to imagine Programming is just like a dinner set that provides Main meal and Dessert where Main meal refers to Programming logic and Dessert is the Programming Languages.

Does anyone here could explain to me what is programming logic actually is?

That has to be the strangest software simile I have ever seen.

I think what he's saying is that the important part of software development is designing what you want. Actually coding that up in a language is less important. You can take the same design and write it in any of several languages and get the exact same program no matter what language is used.

It means that learning the programming logic is more important as compared to the syntax of different programming languages.

Suppose you have to write a program to print the Fibonacci series. How would you do that ? The designing of algorithm is more important. You can use the same algorithm in any language. If you know the language syntax of C/C++/C#, Java and many other languages but do not know how to use them to solve real life computing problems, then your knowledge of computer languages is useless. The meal is important, the dessert is not.

Well , now I got it xD. So my conclusion is , no matter what programming language I'm using as long as the LOGIC is the same will produce the same answer isn't it? Thanks. :thumbsup:

Yes. The logic is the key.
