Whether you’re a spy undercover or somebody’s best friend, if you’re in possession of a secret, you’re going to need a good strong code. In this workshop, we’ll consider some of the most important elements of code-writing: how codes work, how people have used them throughout history, and, most importantly, how they can help us tell a story. Needless to say, we’ll also break a code or two—and create some codes of our own.
