Algorithms and Data Structures - Part 1

by Robert Horvick

In this course, you will look at the core data structures and algorithms that are the building blocks of applications everywhere. You will learn how they work and see real-world examples that you can apply to your next project.

What you'll learn

Do you want to learn the core algorithms and data structures used in software development? This course is for you! In this course, Algorithms and Data Structures - Part 1, you will learn foundational knowledge of several common data structures and associated algorithms. First, you will learn about arrays and the asymptotic analysis of algorithms. Next, you will discover several data structures including linked lists, stacks, queues, binary search trees, and hash tables. Finally, you will explore how to modify a real-world application to use these data structures to improve usability and increase performance while reducing the amount of code. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of fundamental data structures and their algorithms needed to know when to use them in your own software development.
