This lesson requires you to know the basics of hamburger-making:
- Place the bread down
- Add the burger patty
- Add the pickles
- Place the bread on top
What if you had to say each step every time you ordered a hamburger? It’s tedious. It takes a long time. (How do you fit that on a menu?) And it risks making mistakes.
In this lesson you will learn a solution to that problem: functions. You’ll learn how and why they are used in programming and be able to communicate their benefits to other programmers!
Functions are used throughout programming — in fact, some styles of programming rely completely on functions. Knowing this information will be useful for anywhere your programming path takes you.
Build hamburgers without a function: make three hamburgers by clicking on each instruction.
Hint: Add bread – Add burger patty – Add pickles – Add bread.
