Data Structures and Algorithms: Deep Dive Using Java
Learn about Arrays, Linked Lists, Trees, Hashtables, Stacks, Queues, Heaps, Sort algorithms and Search algorithms
So you’ve worked with the basics of data structures and algorithms in Java (or another OO programming language) but feel like you need a deeper knowledge of how things work.
Maybe you have taken other courses on this topic that focus more on teaching how to pass job interview tests (theory) instead of how to make good choices for the programs you develop (implementation).
Or maybe you are ready to move from a junior programming position to a more senior one and need to get skilled in advanced concepts like data structures, and how to apply them to your own projects.
Whatever the reason, if you are looking for a course that focus on the implementations to give you a complete understanding of how things work, then this is the course for you.
This course goes over the theory of how things work, but only to give you what you need to know to understand the implementation covered.
Complete source code is included and available for you to download.
This is a hands-on course! If you want to try understand things at a deep level, and work on implementations, rather than theory, then again, this is the course for you.
The course also spends more time than most other courses of its kind looking at what’s available in the JDK. Students wanting to understand how things work “under the hood” will benefit enormously from this course.
Why learn about data structures and algorithms?
The reality is, the more you learn about data structures and algorithms, the better a programmer you become.
Because, data structures and algorithms are effectively patterns for solving problems. You want to add as many of them as you can to your skill-set. By doing so, you will find you solve more problems, and use the right tools for the job, in a more elegant way. And you will learn a heap of them in this course.
Why enrolling in this course is the best decision you can make.
Your instructor, Sarah Ettritch has over 25 years’ software development experience and has been working with Java since JDK 1.1. She has spent many years creating tools used by developers, which required a deep knowledge of data structures and algorithms, and is perfectly qualified to teach this course.
Most courses focus on giving you the theory of how things work, so that you can take an interview. Whilst the theory is important, the knowledge of how to implement these data structures and algorithms are of vital importance.
This course goes over the theory of how things work, but only to give you what you need to know to understand the implementation covered. The main focus of the course is to give you a real understanding of how things work under the hood, so that you can apply this to future programming projects.
If you want to actually understand how things work, and be able to take that understanding and apply it to your own programs, then this course is for you.
After completing this course, you will have a solid understanding of data structures and algorithms (both the theory, and the implementation).
The sooner you sign up for this course, the sooner you will have the skills and knowledge you need to increase your job or consulting opportunities. Java developers with key skills and understanding of data structures and algorithms are in high demand and get paid extremely well.
If you are ready for that new job promotion or consulting opportunity, it’s time to get started.

- Previous experience with an object-oriented programming language, preferably Java (but any OO language is fine).
What you will learn
- Learn the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of data structures, so you can choose the best data structure for your data and applications
- Code an implementation of each data structure, so you understand how they work under the covers
- Learn many of the algorithms commonly used to sort data, so your applications will perform efficiently when sorting large datasets
- Learn what’s available in the JDK for storing and sorting data, so you won’t waste time reinventing the wheel
Who should attend
- Developers who have some knowledge of Java (or another OO language) looking to understand data structures and algorithms at a deep level

This course is perfect for anyone learning about Algorithms and Data Structures. The instructor explains all the concepts very clearly and it's easy to follow and understand. I definitely recommend this course. One thing I would love to see added is Graphs, otherwise it covered a wide range of algorithms and data structures!

A really good way to begin building a foundation into understanding data structures and algorithms.

Even though I see challenges at the end, adding an exercise for each type of algorithm would be a great benefit to ingrain the theory along with the implementation.

Lessons are clear, not text saturated and use good examples. I can see it clearly in my smartphone.

I just finished this course very happy. I think the professor is knowledgeable on the field. What I liked most about her is that she explains the concepts first and then she moves on to coding and showing you the actual implementation. If you want to get to know the majority of basic data structures and algorithms, this is the course for you! The only advice I would give you is to practice the material provided and taught by the professor until you know it inside out. Thank you to the professor of this course and Tim Buchalka for creating such amazing educational material.
