A practical guide to learning data structures simply and easily
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
If you’re self-taught programmers in any language who wants to gain a solid understanding of data structures and how to use them to solve real-world problems in your day-to-day development work, then this book is for you.
What You Will Learn
If you want to learn different data structures and their real-world applications quickly through practical examples, then Everyday Data Structures is for you. This book can introduce you to new data structures and their potential applications through examples in languages common to mobile software development on the most popular platforms. The examples are presented with real-world concepts using language that everyone will understand.
This book is logically divided into two parts; the first one covers the basic data structures that are built into most languages such as Objective-C, C#, Java, and Swift. It will cover detailed analysis of the common data structures such as arrays, lists, stacks, Queues, and heaps, typical applications, and specific concerns for each language. Each chapter will provide in-depth examples in several popular languages based on real-world applications.
The second part will cover more advanced data structures such as generic collections, sorting, searching, and recursion and ways to use those structures in everyday applications.
Style and approach
This is a practical, result-focused guide, which is easy to follow, but also fast-paced and really satisfying with full of examples
