What Is "hello world"

I have Been researching how to publish an app and have started experimenting with gamesalad, but one thing that came up on apple and in many dev discussions is a hello world code, What is this?

Who am I? And if yes, how many?

'Hello World' is usually the very first thing a dev learns how to code. It is simply text saying 'Hello world'.

Hey, thanks, now I know, I had thought that it was some sort of code to put the app in the app store. Thanks for the help
