Inside a software/programming compiler #Programming @gitconnected
gitconnected posts Inside a Compiler – an overview of the systems to go from source code to an executable program.
At some point every program we use was compiled by a compiler. From desktop apps to embedded software in a microwave. All programming languages, including assembly, are compiled.
The output of a compiler can vary. Compilers can change the source code language (transpilers), produce bytecode for interpretation, or machine code for native execution. At their core, compilers are translators.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
