No, "Hello world" is typically the first program assignment in introductory computer programming classes as it is trivial to write and almost useless.

No. The first computer program was an algorithm designed to calculate a sequence of Bernoulli numbers using Babbage's Analytical Engine, written by Ada Lovelace in 1843.

A "Hello world" program is usually the very first program you write when learning a new programming language, it simply prints out the text "Hello World". Below are a few examples: PHP: echo "Hello World"; _____________________________________ JavaScript: document.write("Hello World"); _____________________________________ Visual Basic: Module Hello Sub Main() MsgBox("Hello, World!") ' Display message on computer screen. End Sub End Module

"Hello World", is a simple computer prgram, mainly used to demonstrate and teach beginners the most basic syntax of programming languages. This is the first program that many people learn the basics of programming with, and is easily explained to novices.

1. Learn a programming language. 2. Get a program to compile the code into a program. 3. Enjoy the program! :D Simple C++ hello world program: #include <stdio.h> int main() { printf("Hello world"); // This prints Hello world on the screen return 0; // This returns the Main() function 0. When the function returns 0, it closes. }

There is no such thing as a hello kitty computer. Whenever you see a hello kitty computer, it probably has a`cover or a sleeve on it.
