HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA
Everyday we hear words like software, computer virus, process automation and a lot of other techy buzz words. Today, we will try to explain in simple terms what a software is, what it does and how it can benefit or harm you.
This is a definition from our favourite repository – Wikipedia
Computer software, or simply software, is that part of a computer system that consists of data or computer instructions, in contrast to the physical hardware from which the system is built. In computer science and software engineering, computer software is all information processed by computer systems, programs and data. Computer software includes computer programs, libraries and related non-executable data, such as online documentation or digital media. Computer hardware and software require each other and neither can be realistically used on its own.
At the lowest level, executable code consists of machine language instructions specific to an individual processor—typically a central processing unit (CPU). A machine language consists of groups of binary values signifying processor instructions that change the state of the computer from its preceding state. For example, an instruction may change the value stored in a particular storage location in the computer—an effect that is not directly observable to the user. An instruction may also (indirectly) cause something to appear on a display of the computer system—a state change which should be visible to the user. The processor carries out the instructions in the order they are provided, unless it is instructed to “jump” to a different instruction, or is interrupted (by now multi-core processors are dominant, where each core can run instructions in order; then, however, each application software runs only on one core by default, but some software has been made to run on many).
The majority of software is written in high-level programming languages that are easier and more efficient for programmers, meaning closer to a natural language.High-level languages are translated into machine language using a compiler or an interpreter or a combination of the two. Software may also be written in a low-level assembly language, essentially, a vaguely mnemonic representation of a machine language using a natural language alphabet, which is translated into machine language using an assembler.
So a software is a code or a collection of codes allowing you to interact with a computer, a mobile phone or even your tablet. Every time you play a game, you are using a software, applications are software.
Software can be put into categories based on common function, type, or field of use. There are three broad classifications:

Now a website is your own personal online real estate. Its like having a house on a street. It might take someone to build it for you or you deciding to DIY it yourself, but it takes you to plan how to make it work for you.

The worldwide web came into existence about twenty five years and we have evolved from having simple landing pages to awesome websites with applications embedded and even directional and interactive videos integrated live chat and other features.
Any website is designed to meet a need. It could be to create awareness and provide information like this one. It could be to sell products and services like an online e-commerce shop, or it could just be a fun or business blog providing all sorts of features, programs and serving as links to other possible information warehouse somewhere.
Now, having a website could save you time and money and be your own front 24/7/365. It’s always cheaper than a physical property or employee and can ultimately serve the same purpose. Website design has evolved over time and are now accessible in our home computers, laptops, mobile phones and tablets. Through a website we can connect effectively to over 5billion people in the world.
The type of website you need depends on the purpose your website was set up for. There are suitable one pagers, simple landing page designed like a flyer. Two pagers, three pagers and the popular four pager website. All these are dependent on budget and relevant content available.
We at webawesome can provide you an effective, beautiful website that won’t break the bank. Talk to us today. We can make it happen for you.
