I will present a colloquium-style talk aimed at introducing some classical and more recent developments in the theory of totally disconnected locally compact groups. The goal is to highlight the similarities and differences between the current theory of tdlc groups and the more familiar theory of countable and finitely generated groups, and to inspire more people to take an interest in this rapidly developing genre of geometric group theory.
