What is a bug?

Every day humans write millions of lines of code to tell computers what to do. With such an amount, it's normal to make mistakes when you're coding.

Code errors are also known as bugs.

And, do you know what's the most important thing to have when you're looking for them? Patience! Cleaning up all the bugs in your programs always tends to take longer than you initially think!

Now that you know what bugs are, we want to tell you a story about what happened to us one day cooking a soup that didn't taste as good as it smelled...


Print this short story at home, go through it while you cuddle up in bed, and learn about computers together.

Remember! Understanding computers is a SUPERPOWER. So, keep on learning! We'll see you in the next episode!
