Data Structures Algorithms Description
Have you ever used data structures in Python or Java? Well, do you understand how they work? If you struggle with algorithms, it means you are approaching this topic the wrong way!
There are many places to copy code from, but without having a high-level understanding, it can be not easy to handle data structures well.
This course teaches the fundamentals of algorithms so that you can apply knowledge easily. This course contains NO PROGRAMMING, JUST PSEUDOCODE to encourage understanding of Algorithms and how to use them.
Whatever the reason, if you are looking for a course that focuses on the implementations to give you a complete understanding of how things work, then this is the course for you. This course combines two courses I took as an undergraduate and taught to graduate students at Cornell and Stanford.
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.
This is a hands-on course! If you want to try to 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 effective patterns for solving problems, you want to add as many of them as possible to your skill-set. You will find you solve more questions and use the right tools for the job in a more elegant way. And you will learn HEAPS of them in this course.
Why enrolling in this course is the best decision you can make.
Most courses focus on giving you the theory of how things work so that you can take an interview. While the theory is essential, how to implement these data structures and algorithms is 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 provide you with a real understanding of how things work under the hood so that you can apply this to future programming projects.
If you want to understand how things work and can take that understanding and apply it to your programs, then this course is for you.
After completing this course, you will have a solid understanding of data structures and algorithms. 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. Both Python and Java developers with critical skills and understanding of data structures and algorithms are in high demand and get paid exceptionally well. It would be best if you mastered ALGORITHMS to be a respected programmer.
If you are ready for that new job promotion or consulting opportunity, it’s time to get started.
