How would you explain programming to your grandma?

Like a special language that I use to “talk” to the computer and give it instructions about what to do.

I always explain my job to my family like so: “I make websites and apps.” Of course, this only begs the question if I were talking to my grandma. I’d probably say something along the lines of what @ckerha said: I use a special language to talk to the computer, and like a genie, it does my bidding. And like a genie, it doesn’t always get the details right the first time around. :laughing: Excellent explanations, @Dane and @ckerha!
