Programming

Computer programming is the process of designing and building an executable computer program for accomplishing a specific computing task. Programming involves tasks such as: analysis, generating algorithms, profiling algorithms' accuracy and resource consumption, and the implementation of algorithms in a chosen programming language (commonly referred to as coding). The source code of a program is written in one or more languages that are intelligible to programmers, rather than machine code, which is directly executed by the central processing unit. The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate the performance of a task (which can be as complex as an operating system) on a computer, often for solving a given problem. The process of programming thus often requires expertise in several different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms, and formal logic.

Detect problems with your Arduino projects

“This article was written by Per Tillisch, Tooling Team SW Engineer at Arduino. The Arduino team created a tool to check Arduino projects for common problems. Arduino Lint runs over 175 checks on your sketches, libraries, and boards platforms which …

Project  Piet

Piet

“Piet is a programming language in which programs look like abstract paintings. The language is named after Piet Mondrian, who pioneered the field of geometric abstract art. I would have liked to call the language Mondrian, but someone beat me …

AVR8js: Simulate Arduino in JavaScript

“New AVR simulator that allows you to compile and run Arduino code directly in your browser! When I write about JavaScript or other Web-related topics, I often include code samples that you can run and interact with. This allows the …

Arduino and Booleans: The truth is greater than zero!

“1 Boolean logic with Arduino Binary and boolean sometimes seem like buzzwords, particularly “binary,” but that’s just because people become so fond of this mode of thinking once they get into it. Hint: They’re the cool geeks with …

Investigating ARM Cortex® M33 core with TrustZone® – In-System Programming Tutorial

“This week I’m back to the normal ‘Tutorial’ format with a look at the In-System Programming feature in the boot ROM of the LPC55S69. I’ll use the NXP-provided command-line program blhost and interface with the ROM to …

Motor Temperature Estimation Without a Sensor
