S2:E2 - "Queues IRL"

Where do we see queues in real life? We explore how queues are used in different parts of the tech stack, and help us do awesome things like send email, create animations, and manage requests. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "To Queue or Not to Queue". A huge thank you to Twilio for sponsoring this season of the show!
