Unicode is the defacto standard for text interchange on computer systems in the modern era, with enough codepoints to encompas many different character sets, heirogylpyhs, and emoji.
We'll take a walk through history of how the first coding systems for computers were used, how they evolved through ASCII, alternative encodings such as EBCDIC, and finally how we arrived at Unicode as a standard set.
At the end of the presentation, you will probably have a greater appreciation of how text is stored in computers and leave with a smile😀
Today, we take for granted that computers use Unicode as a medium for text interchange, but it wasn't always take the case. We look back at some of the encodings of yesteryear and how they evolved to create the Unicode that we know and ❤️ today.
