Learning Data Structures and Algorithms
Implementation and Analysis for Increased Software Performance
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: February 2015
Run time: 7 hours 32 minutes

In this Learning Data Structures and Algorithms video training course, Rod Stephens will teach you how to analyze and implement common algorithms used in data processing. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no previous programming experience is required.

You will start by learning about the complexity theory, then jump into learning about numerical algorithms, including randomizing arrays, prime factorization, and numerical integration. From there, Rod will teach you about linked lists, such as singly linked lists, sorted, and doubly linked lists. This video tutorial also covers arrays, stacks and queues, and sorting. You will also learn about searching, hash tables, recursion, and backtracking algorithms. Finally, you will cover trees, balanced trees, decision trees, and network algorithms.

Once you have completed this video training course, you will be fully capable of analyzing and implementing algorithms, as well as be able to select the best algorithm for various situations. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

    Comments about oreilly Learning Data Structures and Algorithms:

    I originally purchased the set of videos because I thought they would work well with Rod's "Essential Algorithms". I am wrong about many things, this was not one of them.

    The videos are of great quality and the presentation clean with plenty of examples. If you want to learn algorithms then I believe this is the place to start. Rod is an excellent teacher and the video provides a great introduction to the material. If I want to go deeper then I grab his book and open it up to the appropriate chapter and off I go.

    This is really all you'll need.

        Excellent book.
        Videos are the best way to learn quick.
        Big O notations are easy and quick to understand.

        Thank you.

          Comments about oreilly Learning Data Structures and Algorithms:

          If you truely believe that you can understand the O notation in a minute or learn to pogram in an hour ... this might be your video, for the rest it's not.
          I appreciate video tutorials and I love them for the time they save me. However, I need to write a bad review for this "tutorial".
          The topic is not an easy one.
          You see a slide full with code(not just any code - we talk about an algorithm) for few seconds and then next slide. FAST FAST FAST. I wont recomend this video, not sure anyone can catch up so fast teaching.
