I rarely learn other people's algorithms. A few in college. I've read a bunch of 6502 tricks I think they called them, but they're algorithms. They're very interesting, clever, but I don't think I've ever been able to use one. More about learning what's possible, how to think more out of the box. I like to learn a little and then come up with my own code in the hope of maybe getting lucky and having something better. If I was really stuck I'd certainly research as much as I needed.
