Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Kansas City Public Library: Plaza Branch 4801 Main St, Kansas City, MO

This month, we'll discuss 3 algorithm puzzles, 1 machine learning challenge, and 1 web UI development cue.

This will be a casual meeting. You don't need to have worked on all - or any! - of the challenges before coming. Those of us who have finished solutions can discuss the approaches we took and what we learned along the way, and those who are still working are welcome to talk through any difficulties you're encountering.

The challenges cover a few different fields and difficulty levels so you can focus on the ones most interesting to you.

Here are the algorithm puzzles, from HackerRank:
- Arrays: Left Rotation ("easy" difficulty) -
- New Year Chaos ("medium" difficulty) -
- Matrix Layer Rotation ("hard" difficulty) -

Here's the machine learning problem, from Kaggle:
- Digit Recognizer -

Here's the UI challenge. Take this in any direction you want - the goal is to learn something and perhaps build something that will be fun to show the group. There are no right or wrong answers.
- The most epic Hello World possible -


Notes regarding the location, the Plaza Library:
- There is free parking.
- There's a coffee shop inside but it closes at 7pm.
- Food is allowed in the room, but library policy is that colored drinks are not allowed.
- Chipotle and The Mixx are right next to the library if you need to grab food beforehand.

We'll be in the Small Meeting Room instead of the Large Meeting Room this time (the latter had limited availability for the next few weeks).

Look for the room that says "Small Meeting Room" on the door. I'll also put a small sign saying "KC Code Challenge" outside the room. Our room reservation starts at 7pm, we will not be in there earlier. Click here for event
