Let’s introduce this lab to you. You are going to learn about how to express and visualize problems.
Computers are very fast, but they are stupid.
Why? Because you have to explicitly tell them what to do. Step-by-step.
Never forget this.
How does a computer do complex things?
Computers do not think and they do not reason. That’s your job.
Computers are 1s and 0s – circuitry.
You have to learn how to get the computer to do what you need.
Software explicitly tells the computer how to solve a problem. The computer runs the program exactly the way you’ve written it.
This is a thinking profession. You need to know the why and the how.
Break. Go rest your noodle for a couple of minutes.
