Computer coding seems to be everywhere these days. But what exactly is computer coding? Well, it’s a little bit like teaching a dog tricks. You have to teach a computer what to do by speaking its “language.” One such language, or code, is binary. It works by using a system of 2 symbols, base 2, often made up of 0’s and 1’s. Check out this article on binary code and take on the challenges below.
Here are a few tasks for you to take on while reading the article:
*Write your name using UTF-8 binary code
*Write something in binary code using a symbol, object, or color that exists in two forms or states (ex: coin, shapes, up/down arrows, etc…)
*Take the “Bit Groups” challenge at the end of the article
We would love to see the binary work you have done! Leave a comment or email your EY coordinator. Happy coding!
