What We Talk About When We Talk About the Big O

Iryna Zayats

I will talk about the complexity of algorithms - how it's measured, why it matters, and what are some common misconceptions. I will explore how being aware of the asymptotic complexity of your solution helps you write better production code.

I used to be a Java developer in the past and now I work remotely for a small UK-based medical project written in Ruby on Rails. I love reading, competition programming, chess and other desktop games.

Fun fact: I once won $10k in a memory competition, yet in real life I am the most forgetful person you will ever meet.

My major expert areas:
Data structures, fundamental algorithms.
