S1:E8 - "Stacks IRL"
Where do you see stacks in real life? We look at how browser histories, call stacks, and undo/redo functionality in blogging are implementations of a stack. We also dig into what exactly a stack is made of and how it operates.
S1:E7 - "How do you make a stack overflow?"
Stack Overflow is an awesome resource, but it's also a real life technical thing! We dig into what causes a stack overflow and unpack the rules of creating and working with stacks.
S1:E6 - "A friendly intro to Big O Notation"
Big O Notation can be scary. But it doesn't have to be! We unpack this popular cs topic and show you how to use it to evaluate different data structures (like linked lists!) and make better programming decisions.
S1:E5 - "Linked Lists in Your Apartment"
You may be familiar with arrays and hashes and variables, but how much do you know about linked lists? We dig into what they are, how they work, and the pros and cons of using this popular data structure.
S1:E4 - "Hexes and Colors"
If you've worked with CSS, you've probably seen colors represented as hex values. But how on earth does #EC152E give us the color red? With a little dose of math, we show you how to represent millions of colors in hex values and how those correlate to RGB values. We also dig into the color theory behind those values.
S1:E3 - "Hex Queen"
Let's explore a very special number together: 16. It's the core of the hexadecimal system, and, in this episode, we'll learn how to count in hexes, discuss where we might see the hexadecimal system in real life, and breakdown the math that makes number 16 so special.
S1:E2 - "What is encoding?"
Binary is great for computers, but really tough for humans to work with. We need something that's a bit easier for us. That's where encoding comes in. Vaidehi and Saron explore how encoding works and talk through some popular encoding schemes like ASCII, unicode, and base64.
S1:E1 - "Bits, Binary, and Bytes"
Our first episode introduces you to the world of binary, and how it relates to bits and bytes. Binary is the foundation of computer science. We give you a beginner-friendly breakdown of how to count in binary (with some fun counting challenges you can join in on!), how it relates to bits and bytes, and why it's important for us to know as developers. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's first blog post, "Bits, Bytes, Building with Binary."
