What we're about
Welcome to the Project Euler Sprint! We were inspired by the Chicago group and wanted to create a Metro Detroit group.
Some of what you see on our group is duplicated from the hard work of Brian Kung and other organizers in the Midwest. We meet on the first Thursday of every month. We're a beginner friendly group where you can work on your own projects or engage in a friendly competition called, surprisingly enough, the Project Euler Sprint! The Project Euler Sprint is a friendly competition involving solving Project Euler ( http://projecteuler.net ) problems for points. Project Euler is a series of increasingly difficult computational math problems that must be solved with code. Each problem is harder than the last, so each problem is worth its problem number in points. Problem #1 is easy, so it's worth 1 point, while problem #50 is much harder, but worth 50 points. You can form teams of 4 people and solutions can be in any language as long as it's coded there. For more detailed rules, you can check each event. It's a low-pressure environment to have fun and meet other people interested in programming.
So check it out and hopefully I'll see you at the next sprint! Cheers, Justin
