Being humans, we rarely learn things linearly.
Instead we all cobble together a good-enough understanding, leaving holes here and there to fill in later.
It's fine. Stuff mostly works.
Until it doesn't ¯_(ツ)_/¯
At some point, it's useful to stop stumbling around and peek back at those holes.
While working through the course, I illustrated a set of notes to help me understand and remember all the concepts.
Primitive Types & Autoboxing
These illustrations aren't perfectly designed to explain the concepts they're about, and instead work as shorthand notes for me.
Take a look at Tyler's course if you want to dig into the concepts more.
