Data Structures and Algorithms: Deep Dive Using Java
What you'll learn
- Learn the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of data structures, so you can choose the best data structure for your data and applications
- Code an implementation of each data structure, so you understand how they work under the covers
- Learn many of the algorithms commonly used to sort data, so your applications will perform efficiently when sorting large datasets
- Learn what’s available in the JDK for storing and sorting data, so you won’t waste time reinventing the wheel
- Previous experience with an object-oriented programming language, preferably Java (but any OO language is fine).
So you've worked with the basics of data structures and algorithms in Java (or another OO programming language) but feel like you need a deeper knowledge of how things work.
Maybe you have taken other courses on this topic that focus more on teaching how to pass job interview tests (theory) instead of how to make good choices for the programs you develop (implementation).
Or maybe you are ready to move from a junior programming position to a more senior one and need to get skilled in advanced concepts like data structures, and how to apply them to your own projects.
Whatever the reason, if you are looking for a course that focus on the implementations to give you a complete understanding of how things work, then this is the course for you.
This course goes over the theory of how things work, but only to give you what you need to know to understand the implementation covered.
Complete source code is included and available for you to download.
This is a hands-on course! If you want to try understand things at a deep level, and work on implementations, rather than theory, then again, this is the course for you.
The course also spends more time than most other courses of its kind looking at what’s available in the JDK. Students wanting to understand how things work "under the hood" will benefit enormously from this course.
Why learn about data structures and algorithms?
The reality is, the more you learn about data structures and algorithms, the better a programmer you become.
Because, data structures and algorithms are effectively patterns for solving problems. You want to add as many of them as you can to your skill-set. By doing so, you will find you solve more problems, and use the right tools for the job, in a more elegant way. And you will learn a heap of them in this course.
Why enrolling in this course is the best decision you can make.
Your instructor, Sarah Ettritch has over 25 years’ software development experience and has been working with Java since JDK 1.1. She has spent many years creating tools used by developers, which required a deep knowledge of data structures and algorithms, and is perfectly qualified to teach this course.
Most courses focus on giving you the theory of how things work, so that you can take an interview. Whilst the theory is important, the knowledge of how to implement these data structures and algorithms are of vital importance.
This course goes over the theory of how things work, but only to give you what you need to know to understand the implementation covered. The main focus of the course is to give you a real understanding of how things work under the hood, so that you can apply this to future programming projects.
If you want to actually understand how things work, and be able to take that understanding and apply it to your own programs, then this course is for you.
After completing this course, you will have a solid understanding of data structures and algorithms (both the theory, and the implementation).
The sooner you sign up for this course, the sooner you will have the skills and knowledge you need to increase your job or consulting opportunities. Java developers with key skills and understanding of data structures and algorithms are in high demand and get paid extremely well.
If you are ready for that new job promotion or consulting opportunity, it's time to get started.

Who this course is for:
- Developers who have some knowledge of Java (or another OO language) looking to understand data structures and algorithms at a deep level
Tim's been a professional software developer for over 40 years. During his career, he has worked for major companies such as Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Saab.
His video courses are used to train developers in major companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Paypal, VW, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and T-Mobile just to name a few (via the Udemy for Business program).
What makes Tim unique is his professional programming career - many instructors have never programmed professionally, let alone had a distinguished professional development career like Tim.
Tim has trained over 1.35 million students how to program, way more than a typical IT Professor at a college does in a lifetime.
In fact, Tim's courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through college programming courses.
"I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months." - Thomas Neal
"I love this guy. I'm in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There's no comparison. Every time I get lost in my textbook, I watch a couple more of these videos and I'm right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in." - Kristen Andreani
"Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fact, I was able to find a job as Java developer with the knowledge gained from this course, so I basically owe Mr. Buchalka my career" - Daniel KubÃ¡nyi
Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Java, Python, C#, Spring Framework, and Android development courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty-five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or anyone else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java and a variety of other languages. In addition, he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field. Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.
Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students. Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.
Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.
Are you ready to start? You can get started today. No previous experience is necessary.
In 2023, video training is the quickest way to learn, and with Tim's experience and training, it is possible for you to become a software developer. You can do this.

I’ve been a software developer for over 14 years (12 commercially), creating Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications during this time.
I am a fully certified Java Developer (Java Oracle Certificate Associate programmer Java SE 8) and have a lot of experience with Java, JPA, Java Enterprise Edition, Spring, Spring Boot, Maven, Gradle, and JavaFX.
In addition, I’ve been heavily involved in game development and frameworks used to create games. I am Unity Certified Expert Programmer.
I am an official developer contributor for LibGDX (a very popular game framework) and am heavily experienced with it, as well as AndEngine, Unity, and Unreal engine.
Teaching people and sharing my knowledge is a real passion of mine, and I really enjoy providing information that is not accessible anywhere else.
I create training material that actually teaches you how to program and how things work! An important distinction since many tutorials on the Internet, allow you to follow along blindly but fail to explain things so that you can apply this to other projects in the future.
If you want to truly understand how things work and become a programmer, you are in the right place.
I'm On A Quest To Give You The Education You Never Received At School.
