Coding is another word for programming. Programs are sets of instructions that tell computers what to do.

When you turn on your computer a program called the ‘Operating System’ tells the computer what to show on the screen. If you want to play a game or use the Internet the operating system can call whatever application you need to do this. Applications are programs (instructions) written in a language that computers can read.

If you want to create applications such as games you must learn how to write instructions in languages that computers can read then you must become a coder or programmer.
