Formatting of a Windows Computer

--Originally published at TC1017 (Python3) – Titel der Website

Thats a blog post for two courses of Ken. TC1017 & TC 2027.

The reason why i took this topic is first of all, that Ken talked a lot in this semester about reason why we should Format a computer. Reasons are, that a student clicks a lot of times not serious links or just download a lot of trash to the computer. The result is most of the time a super slow computer. A computer which worked 1000 times slower than the first day of using.


An other reason is a personal reason. I guess i am one of the students, which did a lot of mistakes with clicking links and download trash. So why i post this is, i just Format one time in my life a computer by my own. I just want to do that again. To learn how it works and to rescue my lovely Surface 4 ?


To the operative work:

It is super easy to format a Windows computer nowadays.

The first step is to safe all your Datas, which you not want to lose. But important is, to realize that maybe movies, music or other stuff from strange websites could be the reason why a computer is not running like it should. So think twice if you also want to safe all the trash!

The reason for the first step is, that the computer will be empty after the process for Formatting.

Now the steps

  1. Simultaneously press the [Windows] and [R] keys to open the Run command.
  2. Enter „diskmgmt.msc“ here and confirm with „OK“. Subsequently, the disk management opens.
  3. Select the desired hard disk from the list and click on it with the right mouse button.
  4. Select the option „Format“ and confirm the process via the „OK“ button.
  5. Then the hard

What is programming in general?!

Dear amigos,

this is a extra blog post, in which i am going to write about programming in general.


Programming denotes the activity of creating computer programs. This is a subsection of software development and includes above all the implementation of the software design in source code and – depending on the programming language – the translation of the source code into the machine language, usually using a compiler.
Programs are formulated („encoded“) using programming languages. In such a language, the programmer „translates“ the requirements and algorithms. Increasingly, it is supported by code generators that automatically generate at least parts of the program code based on models. Other tasks of programmers include, for example, testing of its program, creating software documentation.
In many, especially in smaller software projects and using Agile processes, the design and the creation of a program run in parallel, the program develops in these cases in close interaction with the design and vice versa. In larger projects, the design and the programming (then often called implementation)are processed sequentially. The programmer converts the specifications of the design into program code. Nonetheless, programming is also a creative activity. While the design provides a functional framework, it can be implemented in a variety of ways.
Similar meanings: Colloquially one designates the occasional also the configuration of household or other electrical devices as „programming“. Even organizational units of companies in which software is developed are or were sometimes called „programming“.


About the history:

Charles Babbage designed the Analytical Engine, which was never built. Ada Lovelace translated in 1843 the description from French and added own notes. These were twice as long as the original French text by Luigi Menabrea. The notes contained a tabular plan for calculating Bernoulli numbers, which is referred to as the first program. These notes
