PyLadies presents Algorithms as Recipies for Computer Programming – June 5th

May 30, 2013

Algorithms sometimes intimidate but really they are just recipes computers use to perform repetitive tasks. Join PyLadies PDX at In Other Words on Wednesday, June 5th at 6pm for this introductory class.

Developer Rebekah Golden will:

  • Help beginners recognize when an algorithm would be useful.
  • Demonstrate some basic methods for creating an Algorithm in Python(a simple computer programming language).
  • Examine algorithms that have been written by others for common tasks.

If you are learning, considering learning, or are just curious about computer programming this class is for you. You don’t need a laptop for this lecture, but if you bring one you can build a computer recipe or two yourself!

Discussion and repetitive task descriptions welcome.

 pyladiesPyLadies PDX is a professional and social group for women who are Python programmers at every experience level. We hold workshops and other events for primarily woman-identified developers every 1st and 3rd Wednesday at 6pm, and we welcome all to get together and hack every Saturday at 11am. We are part of the larger PyLadies organization, and as such are a nonprofit under the umbrella of the Python Software Foundation.

This workshop is open to the public, and people of all genders are welcome to attend!
