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

    From a rookie perspective, this was a great problem to work on. Previous challenges have been over my head (but still fun to attempt). I would love if anyone who completed the algorithm last night would be willing to share their code with me- [masked]. Thanks!

    I have been earlier to this meetup and we have solved some tough problems. It will be nice to know in advance the topic or level so we can decide to make best use of our time.

      I kind of agree. I was happy just for the chance to practice some javascript, but the algorithms themselves were pretty well covered ground for anyone with a significant programming/cs background

    Pretty easy, classic algorithm, would have liked something a bit more novel. Good for a javascript beginner though

    Hey, guys, do you have a webcast for people outside the country ?

    March 27, 2014

    • Gregory H.

      We do not currently. It is set in a collaborative environment that is difficult to emulate online. We have discussed it and decided not to webcast it. There is a repository available with some of the code and other things.­
