Algorithms are functions that are used to solve a class of problems. Really any piece of code can be a algorithm! There are common algorithm implementations that have proven to accomplish tasks faster than others. However, speed is not measured in seconds but in terms of growth (Big O notation).

This course is designed to teach not only some of those algorithmic approaches to everyday problems but review the pitfalls and optimizations that comes with using them at all. They can be a dynamic and powerful way to optimize calculations, processes, and performing tasks. However, if used incorrectly it can not only destroy a system but can be a nightmare to untangle. Many programming positions today test the knowledge of an individual’s ability to understand and implement algorithms. Let’s work through recursion, sorting, loops, and many more!

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Probably could use some more explanations for some of the more advanced topics like knn.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Include more examples of dynamic programming , divide and conquer since those are hard concept to grasp in cs. Overall great work .

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    The first half was very strong, and much better than other courses on algorithms/data structures (including the other one on Egghead). The second half, especially the KNN content, felt like it could be explained better or coded in a more verbose way to make it easier to understand.

    I would have liked to see more examples of applying the algorithms to a variety of different problems too. Maybe for a future series.
