-Desktop and Laptop Computers
-Mobile Phones, etc.
Additionally, coding can be developed and implemented for commercial-grade computing technologies devices employed by: Global Positioning Satellite Systems, Law Enforcement Systems, Military Systems, Medical Systems, Banking and Finance Systems, Artificial Intelligence Systems, Robotics, and beyond.
