Hello world as office graphics?

A “Hello, World!” program generally is a computer program that outputs or displays the message “Hello, World!”. Such a program is very simple in most programming languages, and is often used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language. It is often the first program written by people learning to code. We built versions of this program that threw up results in different Indian languages.

“The tradition of using the phrase “Hello, World!” as a test message was influenced by an example program in the seminal 1978 book The C Programming Language.”

Coding errors

Computer history is full of spectacular and expensive bugs that cost companies and government entities money, time, reputation — and sometimes, people’s lives. It’s important to learn from our past and software testing is no different. We found this interesting article that compiled a list of costly errors. The outcome was to inspire the techies in the office to create quality code.

“While calculating the full financial damage of software bugs can be difficult, these four bugs were some of history’s most expensive and have a lot to teach.”

Can coding mistakes be expensive?
