About this workshop series

We’ll explore the concepts and code behind computer science topics that are fundamental knowledge for any programmer as well as popular job interview questions.

Part 1 of the workshop will focus on big O notation, recursion, and the binary search algorithm.

Part 2 will focus on data structures - determining their efficiency, the benefits and tradeoffs of different structures, and implementing a hash table.

Takeaways

Part 1: - Analyze algorithms to determine their Big O complexity. - Explain the difference between brute force search and binary search. - Implement the binary search algorithm.

Part 2: - Determine when different data structures should be used and why. - Analyze data structures to determine their Big O complexity for basic functions. - Implement a hash table.
