Join our Back End Engineering instructor, Gavin Stark (http://www.meetup.com/The-Iron-Yard-Tampa-Bay/members/1412901/) to learn about the fundamentals of computer algorithms and sorting techniques along with our Student Enrollment Representative, Holly Valenty (https://www.meetup.com/The-Iron-Yard-Tampa-Bay/members/215169340/), to learn more about The Iron Yard (http://www.theironyard.com/).
This course assumes no previous knowledge of any programming language.
The first half of the course will be a short lecture on the basics of algorithms and their application to computer algorithms followed by a review of several algorithms for sorting data. We will wrap up by discussing how to measure the efficiency of algorithms and discuss some notoriously difficult problems in computer programming.
• There isn't any coding planned, so feel free to come with yourself and a notebook.
• What is an Algorithm?
• Real world use cases
• Examples of algorithms in every day life
• Formal definitions
• Sorting algorithms
• Algorithm complexity
• Challenging problems in computer programming
Stick around for networking and Open Code (https://www.meetup.com/The-Iron-Yard-Tampa-Bay/events/qjfsklywgbjc/)!
