Data Structures, Algorithms, Coding, Cracking coding interviews, Python


  • Have basic programming understanding


This course will start from the very basics of algorithms and data structures and cover all the advanced data structures. We will discuss all the concepts that you need to learn and dive deeper into popular coding questions. You do not need any pre-requisite knowledge in data structures before taking this course. So, if you are a newbie or an advanced programmer looking to refresh your knowledge, this is the course for you. Moreover, it is in Python and the solutions to all the coding problems are given in Python, which makes it more interesting and gives you the opportunity to learn Python as well.

The highlight will be the coding problems that will be explained as well as given as exercise in this course. You will learn the following concepts in this course:

1. Big O

2. Arrays
