Mathematics, Surprisingly

Mathematics, Surprisingly

Do programmers need advanced mathematics? And what if they are designing and implementing a programming language? In the talk I will show where I needed mathematics in my work at Jut and how bad job I would have done without understanding it. You can think of this as a small contribution to a discussion about education of programmers and the role of mathematics and other theoretical subjects in it.

Presented at Rubyslava #52 (Data Science Edition).
