Coding is the process of assigning a code to something for identification or classification. When we say coding we usually think of computer coding first, which is also known as computer programming. Codes are basically a set of instructions that guides computers on what actions to take. If one learns to write codes, then one can easily command a computer on what to do or how to behave at a much faster pace. 

There are a total of four types of primary computer coding languages. They are:

  1. Imperative or Procedural
  2. Logical
  3. Functional
  4. Object-Oriented 

Computer programming languages serve us with various purposes such as they may be used for a specific part of the translation process like machines, assembly, and high-level. All of the programming languages ultimately fall under two main categories, High-level Coding Languages, for example, C++, Java, and Python, and Low-Level Coding Languages, for example, assembly and machine code.
