In this episode of our weekly software podcast, we look at the life and legacy of George Boole. Boole was a 19th century mathematician, whose work laid the theoretical foundation for digital computing as we know it today. We explore his symbolic logic and its impact on the evolution of modern computing - from the logic behind 0s and 1s in the circuits of a computer processor, to the instruction sequences at the basis of modern programming languages.For this episode, Padraig Coffey, CEO at Zartis, is joined by Albena Krasteva, Head of Growth at Zartis.We hope you enjoy listening to our tech podcast and feel free to share any feedback with us: podcast@zartis.com.Some sources we used and enjoyed:George Boole, Claude Shannon’s and Alan Turing’s role in Computing EvolutionHow Aristotle Created the ComputerClaude Shannon: Reluctant Father of the Digital AgeThe Genius of George Boole - How to be a Genius
