In this chapter we write a very simple code that asks your name and age and then repeats it to you. Before writing any code, it is a good idea to make a plan of the computation. An effective way to do this is to write an outline of the computational steps in more human-readable form, which we call ``pseudocode''. There are no syntactical rules for pseudocode. The only requirement is that it should be human-readable and detailed enough that you can easily convert it to the actual C++ code.
