Lesson 1: Hello World

Images come to mind of lines and lines of gibberish people call a language, hoodie donning teens flooding the world with fake news and getting Trump elected and lots of news about how scientists are decoding the human gene using Crispr. A majority of the time, the code actually is as complex as it seems, and requires the input of hundreds of people with decades of experience with coding.
