Algorithms in Practice (with FullContact CTO Scott Brave)
Real-world algorithm development looks nothing like what you learned in school. In this session we'll share our practical experiences and lessons learned building algorithms at scale in a startup environment. Effective, extensible algorithms can be a major competitive advantage when done right, but can also be a huge time sink if not approached thoughtfully. Come to learn key principles for turning your algorithm spaghetti into algorithm zen, and pick up some useful tools along the way.
Speakers: Scott Brave, Michael Rose, and Jack Kelly
