Technology has been growing since we have entered the age of technology and it is not stopping any time soon. It has gone from a huge truckload of mechanisms for 512KB storage to a 1TB storage at the tip of our finger. It’s evolving and is taking mankind on its journey as well.
Coding has been a part of technology ever since the first computer got into the process of making. A computer is a dumb machine and without our input, via coding, it can do absolutely nothing.
Since the inception of its concept, coders have been trying to make coding easy and simple, so that a layman can give the instruction he wants to his computer. There are other ways of personalizing your computer and software, but being able to code your own software is a huge deal.
You can break all the boundaries of creativity if you get a hold of a system where you can build your own software without having to memorize lines of code, syntax, and semantics of different coding languages. Computer-assisted coding comes into play here.
To embrace computer-assisted coding completely, we have to get acquainted with the CAC software. Computer-Assisted Coding software is software that helps coders by suggesting the code for a specific task they have to perform.
Let’s discuss this with an example. If a coder has to write a code for sorting, CAC software can write multiple codes in reference to the already written code and suggests to the coders to select the one that suits the code best.
Another technology we have to embrace for computer-assisted coding is electronic documentation via system interfacing. We have to do the documentation electronically to let the CAC software understand the requirements better. When the code is written, CAC will automatically include it in the documentation.
The coder must know how to feed the CAC software with interfaces. To generate the correct and most accurate code for a module, the CAC software must know the interface in detail and should have all the information about the requirements of that interface so it can suggest accordingly.
For example, if CAC is writing a code for a module from the financing perspective, it has to keep information security as a constraint before writing the code but if CAC is writing a code for a module that is related to no sensitive information, it can skip high-level security and work entirely on the purpose.
These are the technological requirements for computer-assisted coding.
