Once you get past simplistic computer programs with one or two variables youll use a data structure to store the values-and groups of values- in your applications. While they are sometimes taken for granted in modern programming environments a deeper understanding of data structures is vital for any programmer who wants to know whats going on under the hood and understand how to defend the choices theyve made for performance and efficiency. Simon Allardice offers that understanding to you in this Foundations of Programming course.
Starting with simple ways of grouping data like arrays and structs together youll explore gradually more complex data structures like dictionaries sets hash tables queues and stacks links and linked lists and trees and graphs. Simon keeps the lessons grounded in the real world and answers the why behind many data-structuring decisions: Why use a hash table? Why is a set useful? Why avoid arrays? When youre finished with the course youll have a clear understanding of data structures and understand how to use them in whatever language youre programming in today or 5 years from now.Topics include:
What is a data structure?
Using C-style structs and arrays
Sorting and searching arrays
Working with singly and doubly linked lists
Using stacks for last-in first-out (LIFO) structures
Using queues for first-in first-out (FIFO) structures
Working with hash tables
Understanding binary search trees (BSTs)
Learning about graphs
