    This looks great, thanks for sharing it here! I’m keen to join but can’t make the first session due to other commitments.

    Given that the reading material is clearly laid out it should be possible to catch up but are meetings recorded or transcribed at all?

      I’ve asked about this in chat. It is planned that the meetings will also be transmitted on Twitch, with recordings kept for 14 days.

        Please encourage them to do that and to post the recording links.
        My time zone means I can’t join live, but I’d like to follow along “offline”.

        Working through something with recordings of discussions is strangely motivating and you actually feel involved, despite not being able to contribute.

          Thank you!

          This is especially interesting given that Advent of Code is coming up! Thanks for sharing.

            What’s the agenda for the meeting this Tuesday?

            1. 2

              On Tuesday, we will read the first couple of pages of the handbook and discuss the first few introductory problems in the problem set. We will keep an updated schedule and study plan available here: https://offbeat.cc/cses/. Right now it says,

              Current plan: Problems 1-6; Pages 3-11 (Oct 19-21)

              In case that looks like a slow schedule, indeed our reading sessions tend to be slow-paced most of the time. We pick only about one or two topics in most meetings. As a meeting host, I focus on spending a decent amount of time with each concept with the intention of developing good intuition for the subject matter, as opposed to covering too many items in the same meeting.

                Thanks.

              This looks to be so fun! I can’t join the live meetings due to timezone issues, but would love to follow along at night with the recorded videos!
