Wednesday Meeting - Dynamic Programming

This Wednesday, November 16, Dr. Hoyer will be teaching a session on dynamic programming.

Dynamic programming problems are quite prevalent in both programming contests and in technical interviews at companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, etc., so having a good understanding will make you really stand out.

To give perspective, there were two dynamic programming problems in the last ACPC, and the top 3 teams were the ones who were able to solve those problems. Understanding how to solve these problems might make the difference between placing 15th and in the top 3.
