  • In Detail

    As businesses collect increasing amounts of vital data, the need to structure software components increases every day. Using appropriate data structures and having a good understanding of algorithm analysis is key to writing maintainable and extensible quality software, thus solving the crisis.

    Learning JavaScript Data Structures and Algorithms will show you how to organize your code with the most appropriate data structures available to get the job done fast, and in a logical way that is easy to maintain, refactor, and test. By using effective data structures, you can take advantage of advanced algorithms, thus making your web applications more powerful and scalable. You will learn about common software engineering data structures, such as linked-lists, trees, and graphs, and get to know how to implement them in JavaScript. You’ll also master ways to use them in various types of algorithms.

    You will begin by finding out how to build on native JavaScript constructs, and create collections such as maps, queues, stacks, sets, graphs, and other data structures. You will then discover how to develop, analyze, and improve algorithms to search deep trees, lists, and other complex collections, as well as sorting containers of data.

    This practical course will guide you through a web application development cycle using a structured and disciplined approach, focusing on accuracy and efficiency as you build quality software.
