The origins of code(?)

Recommended Posts

Over the past 2 years I've started developing again - after many years off.

Often, this thought comes to mind and makes my brain laugh in frustration;

What confuses me about code is that your coding to make something, but the code your coding had to be defined by someone to tell that bit of code that youre writing what to do and how to perform ๐Ÿคฏ

Anyone else experience this/thought about.. or have the answer to this? ๐Ÿ˜…

It's all just 1s and 0s (dots and dashes).

I found learning Assembly helped me understand a bit deeper, look into lower level programming if you wish to understand how it works further.

All a computer can do is count (add and subtract).
All we've done is give it new ways to count - ultimately boiling down back to a bunch of integers.

I.e., we created translation packs to trick a compressed lightning rock into thinking
