Nibble on coding history with Vaidehi Joshi


Editor guide

Learned two things:

  • that I've been pronouncing Euler wrong.
  • the origin story of graph theory!

that I've been pronouncing Euler wrong

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


S - Q - L, I've never tried to make it into a word since it has no listed vowels.


As sequential query language..? :D


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


I agree, Ruby + @ben are the real stars here :D


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!


Nice to get some consolidation exactly how it is defined, thanks!

GraphQL's name now makes sense to me! :)


You look great on Camera Ben. Next stop Hollywood


Very nice video, love It!

P.S.: Your dog is almost identical to mine, so sweet.


This wonderful story behind the origins of Graph Theory. Really enjoyed it thank you!


🤔how do i get my video embeds to show nice like that?
