Hackfest 1001000 Postmortem

by graham

16 May 2007 – short early meeting

Graham had to come early because of a show in East Atlanta with Rob.
(not sure who may have shown up later)

The Updates:
Mark- writing matlab code for cellular automata with Will.
 We discussed optimizing matlab code- perhaps the best gains can be had by preallocating arrays, and by eliminating loops- vectorizing them- by turning them into computations over vectors and matrices. There is a good collection of resources here.
Mark also made an animated visualization of the elementary CA zoo here:
Besides that, he sent me lots of links on DBM datastructures like B-trees and R-trees.

Graham- got Mused to support zooming.

Post updates if you get a chance!
