Computer Programming is defined as the process of creating computer software using programming languages.  Just like we speak and understand English or Spanish or French, computers can understand programs written in certain languages.  These are called programming languages.  In the beginning, there were just a few programming languages, and they were really easy to learn and comprehend.

But as computers and software became more and more sophisticated, programming languages evolved fast, gathering more complex concepts along the way.  As a result, most modern programming languages and their concepts are pretty challenging to grasp by a beginner.  This fact has started discouraging people from learning or attempting computer programming.
