- Design and implement software that use sorting and searching algorithms
- Understand the trade-offs, complexity and use-cases for different types of sort and search algorithms
- Visualise - really vividly imagine - the common data structures, and the algorithms applied to them
What is the performance of your code? How do you measure this? What is complexity and what is its relationship with performance?
A sorting algorithm is not just defined by its complexity, there are a whole bunch of other characteristics which can be used to determine which sorting algorithm is the right one for a system. Let's understand what these characteristics are and what are the trade offs we might make.
- Basic knowledge of programming is assumed, preferably in Java
Note: This course is a subset of our 20+ hour course 'From 0 to 1: Data Structures & Algorithms' so please don't sign up for both:-)
This is an animated, visual and spatial way to learn data structures and algorithms
- Our brains process different types of information differently - evolutionarily we are wired to absorb information best when it is visual and spatial i.e. when we can close our eyes and see it
- More than most other concepts, Data Structures and Algorithms are best learnt visually. These are incredibly easy to learn visually, very hard to understand most other ways
- This course has been put together by a team with tons of everyday experience in thinking about these concepts and using them at work at Google, Microsoft and Flipkart
- Big-O notation and complexity
- Sorts: Quick, heap, merge, bubble, selection
- Search: Binary searching a sorted list
- Nope! Please don't enroll for this class if you have already enrolled for our 15-hour course 'From 0 to 1: Data Structures and Algorithms'
- Yep! Computer Science and Engineering grads who are looking to really visualise data structures, and internalise how they work
- Yep! Experienced software engineers who are looking to refresh important fundamental concepts
