For those of you wondering how code becomes “ones and zeros”(r/learnprogramming)
Nice writeup. For anyone interested in going into this topic further, I recommend Charles Petzold’s amazing book Code. It explains how you can build a computer from the ground up, starting with a simple logic circuit and ending with High Level Languages. Read the amazon reviews, anyone interested in knowing how computers work will get a lot out of this.
