Freeside Programming Team

Freeside Programming Team is a group about getting together to learn and practice advanced programming techniques with pizza!

Every meetup we go over different advanced programming topics, IE:

Sorting Algorithms, Data Structures, Knapsack Problems, Traveling Salesman, Learning Algorithms, Flow Networks, Combinatorix, Graph Theory, and whatever else you might be interested in!

This meetup’s topic is:

The optimization technique Constraint Programming. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constraint_programming

This is a technique that can solve a wide range of optimization problems.


[Also if you have a programming problem you would like to put in we would love that.]

Schedule:

2:00 - 2:30 = Introduce a cool programming topic

2:30 - 5:30 = Casual Programming Competition!

5:30 - 6:00 = Review/Present solutions

This meetup is aimed at new/mid level to expert level programmers to help better everyone’s skills.

The programming competition  can be done in teams or individually. There will be a set of problems with a full spread of difficulty. The set will also try to help everyone practice the covered topic. Currently we are planning on being able to auto-judge C, C++, Java, Python, and Ruby. (Message us if you have don’t use any of the above and have another language)

We will have a donation can there to help with pizza and to help Freeside keep the lights on for events like this. It would be sweet if you could help out.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
