Processing graphs with recursive CTEs


Hello and welcome to the fourth part of our course. Today, we're going to introduce recursion and recursive CTEs, which is probably the most difficult thing we'll cover. Don't worry if you can't understand something at first – take your time and read the instructions carefully again and again.
