About this event

What's an algorithm? Besides being the answer to most interview questions, an algorithm is a way to solve a particular problem in programming.

Google Maps uses an algorithm to calculate driving directions through 3 cities while avoiding highways. Amazon uses an algorithm to figure out exactly what product to recommend to you next so that you'll blindly one-click it.

In this class, we will discuss what an algorithm is and introduce the idea of algorithmic complexity (big O notation) and finish off with an exercise to apply that knowledge.


Attendees would benefit from a basic understanding of a programming language but it is not required.
