COMPUTER PROGRAMMING, AN EXTENSION OF YORUBA’S IFA CORPUS
- This electronic book explains how the whole programming concept in computer science is similar to Yoruba’s Ifa divination system
- There is a thin line between Ifa Corpus and Coding, programmers are copycats of Babaláwos. Programmers write instructions/command (incantations) on Computers (Iyere-osun [powder from camwood]). Programmers write code to give instructions, Babaláwos recite odu ifa to give instructions.
- Àfọ̀ṣẹ (oun tí a fọ̀ tí ó sì ṣẹ) means command/code. You write codes to give commands and make things happen. The whole concept of programming imitates Yorùbás’ Ifa Corpus.
- Incantation (computer codes) can animate the entities in the computer/system and make them become whatever we want: A Signature Verification System, Traffic Controller Systems, Computer Games, and any computer/mobile application you can think of.
