As per normal, CodeMash last week was awesome. I was lucky enough to be
chosen as a presenter. The topic, "The Algorithms Still Count".

In our world great frameworks and tools abound that help us be
productive and build awesome applications that make our customers
happy. Many of the inner working of the features we build are
abstracted away from us. But often times we are called to solve more
complex problems and we have to design and implement solutions that solve those
problems accurately. Now the "right tool for the right job" is our
brain and how we use that tool will decide if our application will be
useful to our clients and scale appropriately to their audience.

Below is a link to the presentation and all code samples.
