you must be wondering how this popcorn is on the screen right now well i'll tell you. the popcorn on the screen is made up of thousands of different coloured pixels all of which are encoded by binary. the 1s and 0s which make up the image are being converted to different coloured pixelsuntil it will make up a bucket of popcorn
you must be wondering what all these 1s and 0s are and what they mean well this is called binary and its a massive code of 1s and 0s where each combination means something different all the 1s and 0s are used to encode different messages to keep your information safe for example the code in the top right means binary is cool :)
we have talked alot about binary and im sure that its very confusing but lucklily people have invented something that makes binary and coding easier to understand. this is called UNICODE. UNICODE was created to eliminate the confusion between all the different codes there are around the world
let me show you what UNICODE is. if you look to my right you will see a UNICODE table this has been designed to unify all the different codes so that no matter what code you use you will always get the same letter or symbol you are trying to find this helps people that have hard times understanding code because everything should be the same.
now i will talk about how messages and photos are sent through the web and different networks for example a text message or a message on Skype. all messages are coded then sent to another device.
the way that these messages are encoded is through binary the words that you send in a message are converted to hundreds of 1s and 0s which only a computer can read then the 1s and 0s are sent to another persons device which is where another computer reads the binary and decodes it into words and numbers which is what you see
