What are the requirements?
Basic knowledge of programming is assumed, preferably in Java
What is the target audience?
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
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
Graphs and Graph Algorithms
Goal of Course
Visualise - really vividly imagine - the common data structures, and the algorithms applied to them
Pick the correct tool for the job - correctly identify which data structure or algorithm makes sense in a particular situation
Calculate the time and space complexity of code - really understand the nuances of the performance aspects of code
