Algorithms

Web Development

Intermediate - I have a good understanding of the skill and can perform most tasks.

Reading and interpreting algorithms and mathematical equations is an important skill for all web developers to have and maintain. Seemingly unsolvable problems have usually been tackled and clever solutions developed.

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a finite sequence of rigorous instructions, typically used to solve a class of specific problems or to perform a computation. Algorithms are used as specifications for performing calculations and data processing.

While it's not common to be implementing a Breadth-first search or solving the Travelling Salesman, understanding and knowing these exist can often help with more complex development requirements.

I have a special interest in algorithms that can represent life and nature in a simulated world. Partly because they are easier to visualise but also because they are genuinely interesting and often provide a glimpse of how nature maybe works.
