In recent months, Microsoft, Google, Apple, Facebook, and other entities have declared that we no longer live in a mobile-first world.

Simply put, an algorithm is not a complete computer program (a set of instructions), but a limited sequence of steps to solve a single problem.

For example, a search engine relies on an algorithm that grabs the text you enter into the search field box, and searches the connected database to provide the related search results.
