# Freeside Programming Team

• Jun 8, 2014 · 2:00 PM

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, Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and whatever else you might be interested in!

This meetup’s topic is:

Big O Notation and an overview of some algorithm classes.

We will introduce everyone to Big O notation, why it matters, and how to calculate it. Then we will talk about what algorithm classes are out there and what they can do. This should help us map out what topics we will want to cover in future meetups.

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.

Here's something difficult from projecteuler.net I've tried before, with no success: (problem 3)
"The prime factors of 13195 are 5, 7, 13 and 29.
What is the largest prime factor of the number[masked] ?"

I'd guess you should be able to use the Sieve of Eratosthenes to do it fairly quickly.
