Python 3 stores data as either a string or a byte. In this lesson, you’ll practice with
decode(), which allow you to convert between the two. You’ll also start to work with Unicode and learn the difference between an encoding and a code point. Unicode specifies code points for characters but not their encodings. There are several different ways of encoding Unicode. UTF-8 is the most common and is the default in Python 3.
