November Microproject: DIY Encryption

Encryption is everywhere online, but you might not even notice you are using it. The website you are reading this on is encrypted when it is sent from the server to your browser, some messaging apps encrypt what you send to your friends, and their devices decrypt the message when they receive it. But what does encryption mean? Learn about how encryption works and how to make your own in the latest DIY Encryption microproject!

Your challenge is to encrypt a secret message explaining why you are interested in technology.
