Now that I've received confirmation of the venue for the first meetup, I'm looking for some speakers who'd like to share something with the group. We have an hour and a half in the venue, so anything from 1 minute to 25 minutes is welcome. I'll be giving a brief introduction to the aims of the Big-O meetup, and @yourstruly has offered to speak about discrete event simulation.
Here are some ideas for a talk:
* HOWTO implement an order book
* HOWTO write a database
* Effective hashing algorithms
* Lock-free data structures
* Graph models
* Collaborative filtering
Feel free to e-mail me privately if you don't want to discuss an idea on the public mailing list.
