Causal set theory is based on twin hypotheses that spacetime is fundamentally discrete and that the structure in General Relativity that will survive at the deeper level of understanding is the spacetime causal order. I will explain how causal set discreteness is compatible with Lorentz invariance and give an overview of the subject and where it stands in regard to kinematics (structure of causal sets), dynamics (on and of causal sets) and phenomenology (how the discreteness could reveal itself to us).
