I recently found a small software project while cleaning up some old folders on my PC. The program uses the concept of evolution from biology to solve simple “problems”.
I wrote this code while reading the book The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. Somewhere in that book, the author ask the reader to write their own simulator and I was crazy enough to actually do that…
It was after programming this application and reading several of his books that I decided to start my studies in environmental sciences at the open university in the Netherlands.
Code available on Github
