Business Algorithms

Submitted Feb 12, 2019

This 2 hour session is a part of our program meant for developers, which has been delivered in some top companies. It looks at algorithms needed by businesses/used by enterprises, goes beyond the basics, and will be useful for just about everyone who will program (which is almost everyone who’s studying science/engineering or even commerce today). We will tune the content to suit budding developers/students in general.


Solving real world problems - algorithms needed by developers and industry (business in general)

Getting hands-on (with one of them in each part of this series): Developing code in Python, understanding use cases (and when not to use), pros and cons



Basic understanding of programming Python^: lists, dictionary - iterating over loops etc.

Hardware/Software Requirements:

Python 3.x and an editor of your choice

^Please note this is a hands-on session, participants need to have a PC/get their laptop. We will cover in Python since it’s popular, participants can code in a language of their choice (provided they can debug themselves)
