COURSE

Algorithms and Data Structures

In our Algorithms and Data Structures course, you’ll learn about different data structures and how they can help speed up your data analysis. You'll also learn how to improve performance on common tasks like searching and sorting.

In addition to learning about data structures, you'll also learn about sorting algorithms such as bubble sort, selection sort and more. You will also learn search algorithms such as linear search and binary search. Plus, you will learn how to profile the data structure and algorithm using both space and time complexity.

By the end of the course, you'll understand the performance difference between data structures such as hash tables, stacks, queues, and more. You’ll apply this knowledge by completing a project working on a real-life example of implementing data structures and algorithms. This project is a chance for you to combine the skills you learned in this course and use correct data structures to analyze stock prices efficiently. This project also serves as a portfolio project that you can showcase to your future employer.

In this course, you'll be able to understand the following:

  • The core, list-like data structures and how they work.
  • The core sorting and search algorithms.
  • The performance differences between different types of data structures.
