Discussion on: Explain Pseudocode

The way I think about and have used pseudocode is all about breaking a problem down into a logical sequence of steps in a way that's easy to read. It's easy to fall into patterns and write code that works but gets there in a less clear or less elegant way, and pseudocode removes the syntax that might be guided down a certain path by focusing on what should happen rather than how it happens.

Thanks! In a few words, you've explained pseudocode better than every other guide or explanation I've found - "what should happen rather than how it happens".
