I remember doing coding theory in my second year at university. It wasnt a subject I was much interested in, but I liked it if only because I found the topic easy to understand and follow.

Now that Im reading the chapter on error-correcting codes in *A Course in Group Theory* by John F. Humphreys, I am discovering a newfound passion for the subject!

What fascinates me most is that coding theory combines elements of my top three favourite areas of mathematics: abstract algebra, topology, and linear algebra.
