Pressing Code: An Introductory to HTML

We’re almost done with BASIC, so we start HTML programming! WordPress recognizes HTML in its TEXT editor, so you can test the latest tricks.  This is in the visual editor:

<h1>Hi</h1>

In the text editor:

Hi

We’ll get to central HTML programming later, but here are some cool designs:

<h1>/</h1>

<h2>/</h2>

<h3>/</h3>

<h4>/</h4>

<h5>/</h5>

<h6>/</h6>
In text editor:

/

/

/

/

/
/

This HTML course will only teach you the basics. Please follow this blog in order to recieve latest posts for the HTML course. The BASIC course will probably be going until 11/27/2014, still.
Ready, Set, Done!

The Basics of BASIC

Okay, now we covered all basics of BASIC. These pages are the posts of the Basics of BASIC programming:

In This Section We Learned about the print feature and how it’s the basis of BASIC programming

In This Section we learned about program directions and the run/list feature in BASIC. Directions are the basis of BASIC programming

In this section we learned about variables and how they are different from the mathematical variables, along with the input, randomizing, and algorithm of numbers. We also learned the becomes feature and described the linking of the If-Then statements in the Intermediate section.

Hopefully you learned a bunch from this tutorial/tutorials! In the Intermediate and Advanced stages of BASIC programming, you should find yourself looking at this archive page of the basics.

Listing Programs And Respective Commands

In order to write a program, you must list your steps:

1 print “Hello, World!”

2 print “Goodbye, World!”

3 print “Never Mind…”

It’s easy to list steps, you just give the computer directions. In MASICA.jar (please refer to the getting started guide), type “1” (no quotations)  in the command box and it should be bold. If it is not, remember to not type anything before the “1”- not even a space. Then, type in anything we learned of your choice. Press enter. Then type the number 2 in the command box and the command, and so on Continue reading Listing Programs And Respective Commands

Variables and Numbers

OK, Mr. CodePress, we’ve learned about letters, printing, and lists. Now, we get to the juicy part: variables. No, these are not like your variables in your math class; these variables are assigned numbers either randomly by the computer, using an algorithm by the computer, or entered using the input tag.

Using “Input”

Input is used to assign a variable to a number, letter, or word. They work with if-then tags (covered in the next post) to make great choice-designed programs (which are pretty much almost every useful program)

Test It Out:

1 print “What number”

2 input g

3 print ,g, Continue reading Variables and Numbers
