Data structures and algorithms are vital tools in writing robust and performant code. Being trained in the proper use of these tools is the responsibility of all Software Engineers. Using these tools correctly involves recognizing which algorithms to use for which scenarios.
In this course, you'll identify and implement several algorithms to sort data stored in a list. You'll explore the various trade-offs made with sorting algorithms in terms of time and space complexity. You'll recognize the nitty-gritty details of sorting algorithms such as selection sort, bubble sort, insertion sort, and divide and conquer algorithms like merge sort and quick sort.
Finally, you'll learn to use searching algorithms that allow you to quickly look elements up in a sorted list such as binary search, jump search, and interpolation search.
