We had a great first meeting[masked]-07. We decided that this group will meet weekly and will operate by lazy evaluation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazy_evaluation): the goals/assignments for a given week will be determined the week prior; we are not trying to have a fixed "course" that will take N weeks to complete.
The first week's assignment (due for[masked]) is as follows: (1) try exercises[masked] in the book. It's OK if you get stuck -- just try. (2) As a stretch goal, try to read both sections 1.1 and 1.2, and to try as many exercises therein that you can / find interesting. (3) Please (if only mentally) prepare to present something to the group: sharing your approach to a problem for which you got stuck / are seeking alternate solutions, your understanding of / difficulty with something you read in the book, etc.
See you next week! Note the change in start time to 10:30am.
