Ive used a program that someone who worked in my new job before had created called ADAM. It's a really long pointless acronym - but essentially, what the program does when ran is cycle through a list of steps, completeing each and gathering info about the system on the backend, before advancing to the next step - with the occasional prompt.
For example, it will prompt and ask if the machine needs antivirus installed - clicking yes initiates an install sequence, clicking no skips and goes to the next step. The program installs a program and then updates it to the latest version before going on to the next step - I want to know what type of program could do this?
Also, throughout the duration of the program completing steps there is a textbox that you cannot interact with that populates itself stating the next step, for ex:
step 1 blahblahblah
then when finished it will say :
step 1 blahblahblah...done
stpe 2 blahblahblah
After all the steps are completed, it goes to a screen with boxes listing all the info collected.
I want to code a modern version of the program for my personal use to make my job as a technician easier, and to show that I can do some programming. I'm not asking for code - just needing to know what language could do this.
