comment TikZ-PGF child nodes in different locations
@cfr Yes, this should serve more as an introduction to what can be done (cf. "Dependently"). The answer is also a now-deleted comment converted to an answer. The forest manual is a must. It also gives a lot of help concerning placement and “the hairy details of vertical alignment”. ;)

comment Plotting the Cantor function
@Jake Thanks. I added an updated version. Though, looking at the definition of the Cantor function on Wikipedia it seems my addition is not useful in any way.

comment \pic: undefined control sequence
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the problem should have been resolved with an up-to-date distribution and version of TikZ/PGF.

comment tutorial for making tikz/pgf library
Nit-picking: “A TikZ library is a file with the specific file name tikzlibrary<libraryname>.code.tex.”

comment TikZ ER-Diagram double edge looks ugly
You could replace the double distance options at nodes with Double defined as Double/.style={double distance=#1, outer sep=.5*(#1)}, Double/.default=1.5pt which will adjust the border to inner side of the black border. This works best for orthogonal connections and for rectangular nodes. For everything else this all seems like a hack.

comment Using \newcommand with ellipse in tikz
The correct usage for the ellipse and the circle path operator (they're the same in that regard) is: \draw[fill=gray!40] (0, 0) ellipse[x radius=\width, y radius=.5*\height]; This also makes it possible to use with styles and make reference (e.g. …[y radius=.5*\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/x radius}] … ellipse[x radius=2] … ellipse[x radius=4] …). Also, check out the ellipse shape from the shapes.geometric library. (Your node usages indicates you could use that.)

comment Creating dots/lines brackets in tree with Tikz
Rotating: Kind of. It provides solutions for paths that are curved where a "straight" arrow tip should be placed. If you can't find the library in the manual you are probably not searching in the newest version (3.0.0).

comment Creating dots/lines brackets in tree with Tikz
Yes, I forgot to mention the flex and the bend options for arrows. Needs the bending library. Though, OP has used a much smaller arrow tip in relation to the curvature of the brace.

comment Creating dots/lines brackets in tree with Tikz
For the arrow, have you tried the arrows from arrows.meta library? (arrows is deprecated either-way.) By the way, your usage of -> and -latex is wrong (for lack of a better word). > is a short-cut and short-hand for an arrow tip that shall be used generally. Define >=latex (or >=Latex with the arrows.meta library) and then use only ->, <->, etc.

comment Better fitting line to node in TiKZ
@Qrrbrbirlbel Replace rect but with line cap=rect. (My mind was elsewhere …)

Instead of the negative shorten, you could just use (1.center) as the start now.

comment Better fitting line to node in TiKZ
Usually, one uses rather thin lines in relation to the size of nodes so the "dis-connection" doesn't show even more so on paper. For same-colored lines you can use the rect but. For more complex borders this will get complex really fast (just think of all the connections from a corner of an rectangle with varying angles of the lines).
