Have you ever thought about how Google searches work? Or how YouTube decides what videos you might like to see next? They use algorithms — step-by-step instructions people design to tell computers how to do things.

When you search for YouTube videos with dogs in them, it would take a really long time to search through the millions and millions of videos on YouTube. Instead, Google creates something called an index to store all the dog videos so you can see them all listed really fast. They also use an algorithm called PageRank to decide which pages are the ones you probably most want to see. You’ll learn about both these algorithms in a hands-on way.

In this session, we will start with some background on how the Internet works. Then we will explore some of the algorithms that help you enjoy it. Finally, you will get to write and try out your own algorithms.
