Part of the series: Programming 101

A series focusing on concepts and the basics of programming

This is the first episode on a series about computer programming languages. In this episode, I will start by discussing why you may want to learn a programming language, then I will give an introduction about what programming languages are, which are the different types of programming languages, their history, and I will also give some pointers to resources which can be useful to get you started with programming.
