Programming Paradigm by Mind Map: Programming Paradigm

1. Procedural

1.1. Emphasizes linear steps that provide the computer with instructions on how to solve a problem or carry out a task.

1.2. Languages: BASIC, Pascal, COBOL, Fortran, Ada

1.3. A program written in a procedural language typically consists of self-contained instructions in a sequence.

1.4. Advantages: Programs detail how to solve a problem.

1.4.1. Very efficient for number-crunching tasks.

1.5. Disadvantages: If the program cannot define the steps for solving a problem.

2. Object-oriented

2.1. Formulates programs as a series of objects and methods that interact to perform a specific task.

2.2. Languages: Smalltalk, C++, Java, Scratch

2.3. Based on the idea that the solution for a problem can be visualized in terms of objects that interact with each other.

2.4. Advantages: Programs define objects, classes, and methods.

2.4.1. Efficient for problems that involve real-world objects

2.5. Disadvantages: Doesn't focus on the generation of procedure-based code.

3. Declarative

3.1. Focuses on the use of facts and rules to describe a problem.

3.2. Languages: Prolog

3.3. Attempts to describe a problem without specifying exactly how to arrive at a solution.

3.4. Advantages:Programs describe the problem.

3.4.1. Efficient for processing words and language.

3.5. Disadvantages: Use a collection of facts and rules to describe a problem.

4. Functional

4.1. Emphasizes the evaluation of expressions, called functions, rather than the execution of commands.

4.2. Languages: LISP, Scheme, Haskell

4.3. An approach to programming that emphasizes the use of expressions called "functions"

4.4. Advantages: If the result of a pure expression is not used, it can be removed without affecting other expressions.

4.5. Disadvantages:If a pure function is called with parameters that cause no side-effects, the result is constant with respect to that parameter list.

5. Event-driven

5.1. Focuses on selecting user interface elements and defining event-handling routines that are triggered by various mouse or keyboard activities.

5.2. Languages: Visual Basic, C#

5.3. The programmer is never required to deal with the overall program sequence.

5.4. Advantages: Significantly reduce development time.

5.4.1. Simplify the entire programming process.

5.5. Disadvantages: Omitting a keyword, such as THEN.

5.5.1. Forgetting to close parentheses.
