Join Todd McLeod for an in-depth discussion in this video Eight queens, part of Code Clinic: Go.
(Machine whirring)…- Hello, and welcome to Code Clinic.…My name is Todd McLeod.…Code Clinic is a course where a unique problem…is introduced to a collection of lynda.com authors.…In response, each author will create a solution…using their programming language of choice.…You can learn several things from Code Clinic.…Different approaches to solving a problem,…the pros and cons of different languages,…and some tips and tricks to incorporate…into your own coding practices.…
- In this challenge,…we're working on a classic computer programming problem…called The Eight Queens.…This famous problem is often used during interviews,…or to demonstrate the utility of a computer language.…It requires an understanding of recursion…and algorithm design,…and it can be quite useful as an exercise…in learning to program solutions…for complex problems.…This problem is proposed by Max Bezzle in 1848,…and solved by Franz Nauck in 1850.…The problem is simple.…
Start with a chessboard and eight queens.…Then set up the board…so that no two queens can attack each other.…
