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

    Very good meetup, I regret that my skills were not polished enough to make more progress. If anyone is interested, I wrote a recursive implementation of the solution for my own education. For some reason any non-recursive solution to a graph problem just feels wrong to me... https://github.com/bendra/HR-Algorithms-Meetup/blob/master/AStar/astar.js

    Terrible explanation and exploration of the problem. In and of itself, interesting simpler problem though, it was a good choice.

    Cannot go again. (Infuriating.) Just declined my rsvp to make room for a wait-lister. I'll try again next time.

    Hey all. I'm not local to the area. Will there be a webcast of this?

    Howdy! I'm really interested in this meet up, but I have very little experience with javascript is that going to be ok?

      In my experience it is perfectly OK. Just have Chrome and a good text editor ready, and be ready to learn. Cheers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
