Mathematics for software developers

learn You Some Math For AGreat Good


Learn you some math for a great good.

This course starts from the certainty that most mathematics learned during a university program have the potential to be used in solving everyday problems that a programmer or software developer confronts, only to remember that knowledge and have examplesConcrete ones that serve as an inspiration so that individually new application opportunities that are helpful are found.On the other hand, certain relatively recent specializations require a greater level of mathematical competence for their true understanding and domination that we were accustomed, such is the case of the Machine Learning, cryptography and the analysis of social networks, for citing some.

By reviewing topics and fundamental concepts, and its illustration with real examples, this course has the objective of wake up again in the participants mathematical curiosity, encourage them in the application of mathematical knowledge that they ever handled, as well as encourage them to acquire themnew.Knowing mathematics does not have any waste.
