Understanding variables in programming


The concept of variables and datatypes are fundamental to understanding how a computer program works.

Key statements:

A variable is a reference to a storage location with or without data.

Some programming languages (statically typed languages) require the declaration of the type of a storage. On the other hand, dynamically typed languages infer the types of data.

Some statically typed programming languages are C and Java. 

Some dynamically typed programming languages are Python and JavaScript.
