Fun, Friendly Computer Science
Code samples to support my "Fun, Friendly Computer Science" talk.
Computer science concepts like Big O Notation, set theory, data structures, and principles of object-oriented programming sound intimidating, but they don’t have to be! This talk will dive into some fundamental computer science topics and debunk the myth that only ‘real’ programmers know CS.
Whether you are a bootcamp grad, self-taught career switcher, or someone who, like me, didn't pay attention in night class, join me as we explore some computer science theory behind the code we write every day through fun illustrations and real-world examples.
JS also felt like the most accessible language choice since most people have probably dabbled at some point in their career or know a JS framework (React/Vue/Angular), and if neither of those things are true, the new class syntax is ES6 is pretty similar to a lot of other languages that people probably have experience with making it easy to read and follow along.
