Algorithms Study Group

We will be watching videos on algorithms from Coursera, white boarding, and discussing algorithms. Coursera is offering a new 6-week algorithms course from Stanford called "Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Part 1". A version of this course is taken by sophomore, junior, and senior-level computer science majors at Stanford as a required course. The class will cover fundamental principles of algorithm design: divide-and-conquer methods, graph algorithms, practical data structures (heaps, hash tables, search trees), randomized algorithms, and applications. Sign up to take the course online and download the videos:

This event is exclusively open to people who identify as female.

      Agreed. BTW, I still can't find you on LinkedIn, Mimi, so connect with me, next time you are on. Cheers - Michelle Z.

    Ladies,
    I was browsing Coursera, and found this class which is complementary to the Design and Analysis of Algorithms that I thought you might all be interested in. This new class is more focused on practical application of the algorithms rather than the math proofs:

    Wish I could make it this week! Alas, 8-11pm is too late for me and this week is too nuts. See y'all next time! (after labor day?)
