The purpose of this unit is for learners to understand how programs are developed, the different purposes of programming languages, and the components that exist within them.
Learners will be able to identify the most appropriate programming language to use for given projects, the impact that data type declarations have on memory and existing technologies that can be used for e-commerce purposes.
This unit is only intended to give learners the background knowledge necessary to progress to using aprogramming language for a specific purpose.
In this unit, learners will be able to:
1. determine the design of programming languages
2. recognise common programming language data structures
3. determine application software for business purposes
4. create documented code.
