I've read first 60 pages of textbook and enjoyed. I've spent about 4-5 hours trying to install apache thrift and that been tough. A few questions

1) Do i need to install both visual studio and flex and bison to install the compiler on windows? This video would indicate only visual studio needed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNQSfRwT0Do

2) Is apache thrift used to build the graph schema in figure 2.1.7?

3) If so is the schema created by using the codes in 3.2.1, 3.2.2 and at this point does it become a bit more intuitive how apache thrift works?

Any other guidance welcome. From a non-programming background and try to decide whether or not to perservere
