Why do we use coding?


#1

Why do we have a special language for coding? Why can't we just use normal language?
Could someone please answer me?


#2

Because the computer doesn't understand human language. Coding is a set of instructions so the computer does understand what it suppose to do

There are some brilliant answers to this question here


#3

Computers understand 1's and 0's. If you ever meet someone that likes to code in Binary... run. Languages like these make it easier to write code.


#4

Why weren't computers made to understand human language?


#5

Because human language is far more complicated. And not suitable for the specific set of instructions a computer needs. From a someone who is new to programming, english make sense, but if you understand computers better, and how they work, it actually doesn't make sense, did you read the quora question i linked to?
