Our community is rich with self taught developers from a wide variety of backgrounds because of programming being very accessible at the moment. As a result, many of us are well into our professional lives before we integrate computer science concepts, like algorithms, into our knowledge base. This talk will look at several such algorithms, what they are useful for, but also their limitations and how we can use a clear understanding of the real world context in which we’re using them to create code that performs and serves our users better than the algorithms alone could manage.

Very interesting and lightweight introduction to some of the black magic CS things.

Good intro content and understanding. Margaret speaks well in front of a crowd and handles questions very well!
