JS Study Group: Algorithms

Every other week we will be getting together to solve one large or a series of small algorithm puzzles in pairs or small groups. This is a highly interactive and supportive group to explore our understanding of Javascript and different algorithm concepts. We welcome all levels of JS experience!

Typical Agenda

8:00-8:10 - icebreaker/introduction/announcements
8:10-8:20 - present and discuss the algorithm(s)
8:20-9:15 - pair off and solve algorithm(s)
9:15-9:30ish - discuss solutions as a group

    I'm a total newb with less than 2 months of experience and this was my first time engaging in an open project like this. With my barely digested knowledge of the material covered on Codecademy's JavaScript course and with an elementary school math proficiency, I felt really out of place. It seemed as though I was the only one in my group of four, perhaps even the entire meetup, to not really know what was going on. Fortunately, although still a bit confused, much of my tension was relieved as my teammates further broke down the problem and solution just so that I'd understand. It's a wonderful experience, will definitely be returning. Also, I would like to thank Peter and Nick for hosting the meetup, good job guys!

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.
