Learned two things:

  • the origin story of graph theory!

Story of my life. How does anyone even pronounce SQL anyway?

I've really been loving these videos Vaidehi. 🙌 Also, Ruby the silent actor stole the show for the Heroku advert. 🐕

If you tried to tell me all of this in a 90 minute lecture I'd struggle to say the least.

Great little history lesson 👌

And I'm featured in the ad 😊

Oh man, anybody else hear this and really wanna play this game? Seems like it'd make an awesome backdrop for a scavenger hunt. 😀

I feel like our modern day equivalent of this story is solving a problem so much that you make a new framework 😅

Thanks for the history lesson!
