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


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.

      So I'm taking vacation today, needing a fun activity, so I think I'm going to try to solve this CNC-DNA problem.... I really like the creative intro!

      I think it was petty fun. We didn't have our normal size crowd but that was alright.

    I feel bad now! I missed the first one and I'll be on the west coast this weekend and miss this one. I'll get there one day though, promise!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
