Day 8: Why you need to be writing pseudo code

When it comes to coding, sometimes you will need to plan everything out before you start coding. That’s where pseudo code comes in.

While pseudo code isn’t really coding, it can be consider a simplified programming language.

Before you write your code, what you want to do is write out in your speaking language to plan out/write out what it is you want the code to do. So if you want to create a program to kill a player but lower the health, the stronger the player could be.

Example of pseudo code.

After you plan everything out it’s time to start writing the code. I like to write my code in the pseudo code. After each statement/line of pseudo, I’ll implement the code.

Implementing Code.

Pseudo code is there to assist in designing your code. A way to get the idea in your head down into code.
