Watched this really nice intro to building a Parser / Parser Combinator from scratch: youtube.com/watch?v=N9RUqGYuGf

Even if you have worked with a parser combinator before, it's amazing to see, how little "magic" there is, by "inventing/discovering" the underlying concepts along the way.

This also helps to build an intuition for `Applicative` and `Alternative` and shows how these abstractions can be practical and useful in a real-world scenario. I really enjoyed watching this :)
