Computer Basics: Intro to Binary Code

What binary looks like, and what it can mean.

0's and 1's can turn be interpreted into far more complex data.

Today we're going to talk a little bit about binary code.

Binary code is a really simple computer language where there are only 1's and 0's, that are either on or off, 1 being on and 0 being off.

Those 1's and 0's can be pretty much anything, but generally they are just numbers, letters, and symbols.

We're going to go into how you decode a number in binary, but as you can probably guess, translating binary can be done with a quick Google search.

The most important part of this is you understand the concept that even simple things like 1's and 0's can translate into something really complex that is the basis for all of the computer languages that exist today.
