October Challenge: Reading Knuth's "The Art of Computer Programming"

Attention all owners of Donald Knuth's book "The Art of Computer Programming" volume 1. bakert at bluebones.net has challenged me to consistent reading of this weighty tome for the month of October. I extend this challenge to all who own tAoCP but who, like most, have failed to make progress in it. Let us gather up our courage and resolve to read it consistently for 1 month.

  • Hee hee. Yes, an open challenge. But no slacking off from reading the book to build the challenge website!

    When do we want to finish Vol. I? 1st November is 45 pages a day. Christmas is 15 pages a day.

    The big question is: how many exercises is enough? You can't do them all in a lifetime!

  • Haha!

    My goal is an open-ended one - just putting in 30 mins each day, say 5 days a week, and seeing where I end up at the end of the month.

    I see you have a more definite goal in mind!

  • Started at p. 10 and after a somewhat distracted half hour ended up on p. 13.
