@ellisonbg Any tips on tackling Problem 59? What are the itertools?

you will need to look up (google!) how itertools might help you - not absolutely necessary, but will mark part of it easier.
I would start by trying to write a simple encode and decode function that can use a key to encode and decode a message - start with a super simple string like "hello" and get that working. Then you can start to hunt for the key that will unlock the message.
