Welcome to the Project Euler Sprint! We meet on the last Thursday of every month. We're a beginner friendly group where you can work on your own projects or engage in a friendly competition called, surprisingly enough, the Project Euler Sprint!
The Project Euler Sprint is a friendly competition involving solving Project Euler (http://projecteuler.net) problems for points. Project Euler is a series of increasingly difficult computational math problems that must be solved with code (generally speaking: we've had an impressive paper solution as well as Excel spreadsheet solutions. Color me impressed). Each problem is harder than the last, so each problem is worth its problem number in points. Problem #1 is easy, so it's worth 1 point, while problem #50 is much harder, but worth 50 points. You can form teams of 4 people and solutions can be in any language as long as it's coded there. For more detailed rules, you can check each event.
It's a low-pressure environment (I rarely get past problem #1, myself) to have fun and meet other people interested in programming. So check it out and hopefully I'll see you at the next sprint!
