PyLadies PDX presents: Algorithms as Recipes for Computer Programming
In Other Words Feminist Community Center
Join us for Algorithms as Recipes for Computer Programming, presented by Rebekah Golden, a local developer at JanRain.
Algorithms sometimes intimidate but really they are just recipes for computers to follow to do repetitive tasks. This is a beginner class on recognizing when an algorithm would be useful, basic methods for creating one in Python, and a quick look at algorithms that have been written by others for common tasks. Presentation is in a room without computers but if you bring yours you can build a computer recipe or two yourself. Discussion and repetitive task descriptions welcome.
This meeting is open to the public. People of all genders are welcome to attend.
