Introduction to Conditionals

We make decisions in everyday life based on conditions.

If we’re tired, we might take a rest. If we’re thirsty, we would find something to drink. If we’re hungry, we grab something to eat. And if we want to be one with emojis πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ, we learn Emojicode.

We can mimic the same type of decision making in our code using conditionals. Conditionals take an expression, which is code that evaluates to determine a value, and checks if it is πŸ‘ or πŸ‘Ž.

If it’s πŸ‘, we can tell our program to do one thing β€” we can even account for πŸ‘Ž to do another.

As we write more complex programs, conditionals allow us to address multiple scenarios and make our programs more robust.
