This week DaSH is undergoing a structural review. That is, we are going to be discussing and (hopefully) explaining the strengths of, and reasons for using, different structures in programming languages (eg R, Matlab, C, python and fortran). Structures (sometimes called pointers, or even cells) are used in most languages and are a good way of minimising memory requirements and increasing flexibility in programming. However they are a bit hard to understand on occasions. We will be starting form scratch with structures and discussing what, where, how and why.
And as always with DaSH, if you have any other data science issues bring them along and we will try and sort you out.
