Know your algorithms - sorting and searching
Comments are closed.
Nice talk to listen to. You can talk very relaxed and your passion for the subject is cool to see. one little thing of feedback, even if there's a little bug in your presentation, don't bring it up to many times to apologize for it ;).
Very interesting. I couldn't follow the iterations of the algorithms sometimes, since you were clicking through them a bit too fast. Also: it's better to finish your presentation earlier. I would have liked the part about search algorithms to get a little more room.
A pretty interesting talk, but the iterations were quite hard to follow for the later examples. I much prefer sorting visualisations like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8g-iYGHpEA
Very interesting talk, made an abstract subject easy to understand. Also the explanation of stable vs unstable etc. was very interesting.
Great subject, well explained. Examples sometimes a bit difficult to follow.
A good introduction and first look at some basic algorithms and analysis of them. I especially liked the coverage of Big-O notation.
One thing I would suggest would be to show the non-inline versions of some of the sorts, mainly because I find them easier to understand. For example, quick sort becomes really just a "split the array into two arrays, one with smaller values and the other with larger, then recurse on each". Perhaps some visuals as to the logic flow?
Anyway, a great talk that was really well presented.
Interesting talk which leads me back to my computer science education. I wouldn't have mind a little bit more theory. But what I would definitely add to your slides is a visualization of the algorithms in a diagram before showing the code. The visualization when the code ran was sometimes a bit hard to follow, I think there are some improvements to be made there. All in all a good and interesting talk. You managed to keep me awake :)
