Learn to code with ChatGPT

Summary: In this blog post, we will explore how to use ChatGPT to create a simple programming language called "Pseud" and write some basic programs. Pseud is designed to be a user-friendly language with a syntax that resembles natural language. By following the steps below and experimenting with various examples, you can learn the fundamentals of coding at your own pace..


1.  Create you own simple coding language by typing this into ChatGPT:

Create a new programming language called 'Pseud' that serves as a generic pseudocode language for expressing algorithms and program logic. Pseud should have a syntax that is easy to understand and resembles natural language. It should prioritize readability and clarity over strict adherence to specific programming paradigms.

The basic structure of Pseud programs should consist of sequential steps, conditional statements, and loops. Pseud should support variables and allow the programmer to declare and assign values to them. Additionally, it should provide basic data types such as integers, floating-point numbers, strings, and boolean values.

Pseud should include a set of common operators, such as arithmetic operators (+, -, *, /), comparison operators (==, !=, <, >), and logical operators (AND, OR, NOT). It should also allow the programmer to define functions and reuse code through function calls.

To write code in Pseud using ChatGPT, simply provide a clear description of the desired functionality or algorithm, and ChatGPT will generate the corresponding Pseud code. Make sure to specify the necessary steps, conditions, loops, and variable assignments for the code to accomplish the given task.

For example, if you need to generate code to find the factorial of a number using Pseud, you can ask ChatGPT: 'Write Pseud code to calculate the factorial of a given number.' ChatGPT will then provide you with Pseud code that performs the factorial calculation.

Feel free to ask for code in Pseud using specific programming challenges or functionalities, and ChatGPT will assist you by generating the corresponding Pseud code to accomplish the task.

2. Ask ChatGPT to write a simple program, such as "write Pseud code to add the numbers from 1 to 10 together"

3. View the result, and learn.

Certainly! Here's a Pseud code to add the numbers from 1 to 10 together:

set sum = 0 
for i from 1 to 10 do
    set sum = sum + i 
end for 
print "The sum is " + sum


  1. We start by initializing the variable sum to 0. This variable will store the sum of the numbers.
  2. We use a loop (for) to iterate from 1 to 10. The loop variable i takes the values from 1 to 10 in each iteration.
  3. Inside the loop, we update the sum by adding the current value of i to it (sum = sum + i). This accumulates the numbers as we iterate through them.
  4. Once the loop finishes, we print the result, which is the value of sum.

When you run this Pseud code, it will output:

The sum is 55

This indicates that the sum of the numbers from 1 to 10 is 55.

By following this self-paced learning approach, you can experiment with different Pseud programs. Feel free to ask ChatGPT for help with more programming challenges or specific functionalities, and it will assist you by generating the corresponding Pseud code to accomplish your desired tasks. Enjoy learning to code with Pseud and ChatGPT!
