o Friday 3/5 @ 2 - 3:30 PM EST
§ Twenty Questions Game: We’ll create a classic game called 20 Questions in Java! This is a fun guessing game where a person chooses a mystery object, and the program guesses that object through a series of yes or no questions. We will review the basics of Binary Trees and Java. No prior experience is required.
§ Meet on Zoom: https://gsuprogclub.github.io/zoom

o Saturday 3/6 @ 2 - 4 PM EST
§ Interview Prep: For Saturdays Interview preparation, we’ll be covering Heaps! Heaps are tree-based data structures that are defined by max or min-heap properties. Heaps are also commonly implemented through priority queues which are an extension of regular queues. This data structure is useful when removing objects based on high or low priority.
