Commands in code are similar to baking cookies.
Now, Will Johansson, Software Engineer at Lyft, sits in front of a gray background.
He wears a black shirt and gray slacks.
Will: So what is a command? A command is a specific action you want to be performed. I am going to give a good example: baking a cookie. Think about the steps that are required. You’re going to need to measure the flour and sugar, and then mix the ingredients to make the dough. Next, you’ll take the cookie dough and scoop it onto the baking sheet, and then put that baking sheet in the oven. Thirty minutes later, you take it out of the oven. Each step is a command. Don’t forget... Eat the cookie!
