Photo ID will be required to gain entrance to Bloomberg's Park House site.
Dietmar Kühl will be talking to us about Quicker Sorting:
Arrive from 18:00 for 19:00 start.
The well-known quicksort algorithm, used by many libraries to provide sorting functionality, is not in fact that quick when a naïve textbook implementation is used. This presentation will demonstrate that by paying attention to detail and making incremental improvements to a naïve quicksort implementation the speed of sorting can be significantly improved yielding a production strength, fast, generic sorting function. The code will be in C++ but the majority of reasoning can be followed with knowledge of other programming languages.
There might be some food and drink provided.
After the talk we will probably relocate to a suitable hostelry for drinks and chat.
Note that the need to show photo ID implies we will require people's names matching their ID.
