Learning the Code
We don’t often think about it because we aren’t taught to think in these terms, but much like computers we are instilled with programs throughout the years of our lives, starting from an early age. These programs can be anywhere from religion, academics, social structures, and what type of up brining you went through and the all around environment you experienced. But much like actual computer code, these other programs we have installed in our minds also have structures or building blocks in which make them up. But can these programs be altered in any way or uninstalled all together? Definitely an interesting concept to explore. One thing make have noticed as we move further along in our technological age, is that much of our technology mimics that of the natural world. Coding is only one facet of many of that reflection.
Check out this brief video on coding and how coding affects the social structure and world around us, and what we can do to change it.
Even though just about everyone has a computer in some form or another, not many actually know how they work, and sometimes how to even work them. These individuals created a very simplistic way to teach everyone from all ages to understand and build a computer, as well as the programming involved in these machines.
