Ever struggle through a programming interview because you couldn’t remember some high school math? Do you want to understand some of the math behind video games and machine learning? This is the talk for you! We’ll take a whirlwind tour through the most important math concepts in computer science.

The specific topics I’ll cover are:
  • Exponents and logarithms, and why understanding them is so important to writing fast code.
  • The modulus operator and what it’s good for.
  • Practical applications of sines and cosines.
  • Linear algebra, the foundation of computer graphics and machine learning.
I’ll focus on the key concepts and how they can be directly applied to your work.
