A Hopf algebra is a structure weaving features of both group symmetries and derivations of Lie algebras into one compatible package. We will begin with a brief history of Hopf algebras and then provide motivating examples. The examples will provide a gentle introduction to the theory and demonstrate the concept of "quantum symmetry". We will also discuss actions of Hopf algebras and end with an overview of current research directions.
