# Open Meeting

• Jun 24, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Every other week, the PyBulls (Python Programmers at USF) have an open meeting.  We typically review and refactor some code with emphasis on PEP8 and best practices.  These open meetings are also good for beginners or for a first meeting for new members.

You do NOT need to be a USF student to join the PyBulls.  All are welcome.

Got a table on the 2nd floor in the northeast corner. Go upstairs, go left and then go all the way back.

I think I'm the only one still obsessed with this from last week.. but I'm a sucker for code optimization problems, so I tracked down the exercise that we were running through last week: http://uva.onlinejudge.org/index.php?option=onlinejudge&page=show_problem&problem=2296 Using some array copy funniness, and replacing most of the Python iteration with C-speed map and filter calls, I'm able to process the the exercise's 20, N (0<N<=10000) and M (0<M<=10000) data sets in few seconds, but I'd have to see the 1million line file the kid was using to see if my solution provides any actual speed up. Twas fun to geek out over tonight. Thought I'd share the link in case anyone else wanted to mess around with it.

Ah, also be sure to give it C style modulus.

mod = abs(num) % M
if num < 0:
mod *= -1

In Python, 100%3 = 1. -100%3 = -2. In C, 100%3 = 1. -100%3 = -1.
