Master Data Structures for Optimal Solutions in Python
What you'll learn
- Know how to use and implement the proven data structures in Python
- Master how wrong data structure kills performance of your program
- Master the optimal solutions to problems like the Balancing Bracket Problems with Data Structures
- Practical experience on to measure performance of data structures
- Know how and when to solve Programming Challenges using Linked Lists, Stacks and Queues.
- The basis of Object Oriented Programming in Python - From drawings to code
- How Linked Lists are used to implement Queues and Stacks
- Learn how to implement Double Linked Lists in Python
- Understanding of a simple Python program (if, while and function calls)
- Basic understanding of a class (object) in Python
- Simple understanding of Python lists
Why master Data Structures?
The simple and naive solution to problems like the Balancing Bracket Problems, Nearest Smallest Element Problem and many more... are not efficient and are too slow for large input sizes. They kill your programs performance.
With the right Data Structure problems like that have fast and optimal run-time.
Also, it teaches you how performance is measured and what matters when solving your programming challenges.
We will cover all that and more.
Most courses on Data Structures focus too much on only mastering the structures itself. Standard courses move too fast forward to complex Data Structures. The normal courses do not explain use-cases and actually show how you benefit from mastering data structures.
This course will focus on mastering the most important and used Data Structures. It will also show you how these Data Structures can be used to solve some of the most advanced programming challenges. Further, it will show you how wrong use of Data Structures are killing the performance of your program.
This is not taught in standard Data Structure courses, which only focus on the understanding and implementing Data Structures.
This course will teach you in an easy way the most used Data Structures and master the power of them.
Python is the chosen language to learn programming for obvious reasons:
Python is easy to master
It is easy to solve complex problems in an elegant manner
...and it is a used by many professionals in most professions
Python is the chosen language to master Data Structures
It is easy to turn drawings of Data Structures into Python code.
No overhead syntax is needed to express functionality.
You only need to master how to get from a drawing to Python code.
This course will give you that and more!
How will you benefit from this course?
You will master the simplest way to turn drawings of Data Structures into Python code.
Understand how and when to use Data Structures.
Implement proven efficient data structures like Linked Lists, Stacks and Queues in less than 5 minutes.
Know what Data Structures to use to solve Programming Challenges in the optimal way.
How to check the performance of your program and Data Structures like a professional.
Simply, you will take your Python skills to the next level.
If you want to become a effective programmer you need to have some basic understanding of the underlying programming concepts. The more programming concepts you understand, the more problems you can solve efficiently in Python.
In this course we will cover the essential proven Data Structures in an straight forward and easy to understand way. You will be learning along the way and implement the Data Structures to get an understanding of it.
This course covers the following
Understand why Linked Lists, Stacks, and Queues are essential to understand in programming
Make simple and easy to understand implementations of Linked Lists, Staks, Queues, and Double Linked Lists
Learn how to reverse a Linked List
How to solve programming challenges like the Balancing Bracket Problem and Nearest Smallest Element Problem
Understand performance of programs and Data Structures
Why do the chosen data structure matters in your solution.
The course is structures in an easy understandable way.
How to simplest turn the concept of a Linked List into beautiful and readable code.
Why you use a helper class to make the operations on Linked Lists.
Showing why the Linked List is an efficient Data Structures for implementing Stacks and Queues.
How to solve problems with the Data Structures
Also, how to test performance of your solutions
You code along - you only learn by trying yourself
At each small step you make the implementation along with me.
You implement it on all stages to increase your understanding of the data structures.
Basically, we learn along the way.
Who is this course for?
You have used Python on any level.
You may be a beginner that want to program as a professional.
...or you have been programming for years, but need to understand the basics better
You do understand the concepts of Python functions, if, for and while-loops.
...that's all you need - still uncertain of your skills - check out the prerequisite lecture that takes you through the requirements.
The course has a 30 day money back guarantee that ensures if you are not satisfied, you will get your money back. Also, feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner Python developer that wants to master how data structures gives optimal solutions to problems
- Python developer that wants to increase knowledge about how to implement and solve general problems in Python
Hi, I'm Rune.
Thank you for checking my course.
With a PhD in Computer Science, an MBA to learn business administration and finance, 10+ years in professional software development, I still find my greatest passion in teaching.
I have helped students succeed with programming since I took my PhD in computer science and was teaching at Aarhus University, Denmark.
Since then, I was a software engineer (programmer), the head of branch of developers, build big software solutions, and software engineering manager in a software as a service (SaaS) company.
Along that journey, I took an MBA from Henley Business School in UK to learn about business administration and finance.
My journey on Udemy started in 2020 and the focus has been on Python programming, which is my greatest passion. I love to make concepts easy to understand and fun to learn.
Until now I have the Udemy Bestseller:
Master Modern Security and Cryptography by Coding in Python
I started to program as 12 years old before the internet was available for common people (read: for me).
It was Basic, yes the language Basic with line numbers.
My best friend started and we helped each other to get better. Before I reached college, I had helped many friends with programming.
It was natural for me to teach at college and I missed it when I left after teaching all the fundamental programming and computer theory courses at least once.
Later I have helped new employees to program, as well as other professionals to automate their work with Python.
I have helped a guy with no experience in programming to get his first job within 6 months of starting.
If anything, please feel free to reach out to me and I'll be there for you every step of the way.
