Investigate the imperative programming paradigm, as exemplified by procedural programming and object-oriented programming, and the declarative programming paradigm, as exemplified by functional programming and logic programming.
The Reading from Brookshear, 2012 will form a starting point for your investigation. For further investigation, remember that you should not reference Wikipedia items in an essay, so make sure to find articles that you can reference.
Write an essay, of approximately 800 words, based on your investigation, which provides answers to the following questions:
- What are the essential differences between the paradigms?
- What are some of the programming languages used for these different paradigms?
- What specific advantages are provided by these different programming approaches?
Your essay should be referenced using the APA referencing style.
