Podcast cover
Read more

Set theory might sound like a scary, super-math thing, but it's not! Well, it is a math thing, but it doesn't have to be super scary. In fact, if you already know how venn diagrams work, then you basically already know set theory. We'll walk you through it all and show you how it connects back to computer science with the help of our favorite foods. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "Set Theory: the Method To Database Madness".
