Adventures with data structures and algorithms

Hola amigos! We need to have a chat about data structures and algorithms. I’ve been messing around with them on-and-off over the past few years and I believe you’ll find spending more time learning them valuable. Here’s what I’m going to talk about:

  • Why you should bother learning about them at all, especially if you think you won’t use them at work.
  • Some fun examples of data structures/algos you’ve heard of (and probably some you haven’t) and how they’re put to work in software you use every day.
  • Ways of learning them that I’ve found to be fun and effective.

I swear in the name of Knuth that there shall be no mention of big-o notation or sorting algorithms. Also, I will attempt a live demo of one of the algos using the SATR[$] transport protocol. It probably won’t work if you are good at the maths and feeling mischievous.
