Approaches to Coding the NEA tasks

In this hub meeting we will be looking at ways to approach solving the NEA. This will include a variety of approaches that should not only help get people to understand a single solution, but some appreciation of how different solutions might compare.

We currently plan to discuss all three OCR tasks and can also discuss the AQA and EDEXCEL tasks by prior arrangement.

Please do also bring along your solutions for feedback if you would like.

The main language used for discussion is Python, although please do let me know if you would like to use another language and I'll see what I can do.

If we have time, I'd like to run an open Q+A on programming. Questions submitted in advance would be helpful.
