logo for badge 1: writing code, running code

In this badge you will learn about writing and running code.

What is a programming code? What is it for, and why are there so many programming languages? Our job is to write code that computer understands, so we need empathy and deep comprehension of how will computer ‘read’ our code, eg. in what order will your lines of code ‘happen’?
