Algorithms: Absolute Beginner's Guide (Addison-Wesley)
Wednesday, 10 January 2024

This book teaches algorithms and data structures. Using diagrams and fully annotated code samples in Javascript, Kirupa Chinnathambi starts with the basics and gradually goes deeper and broader into all the techniques needed to organize data. The author argues that efficient algorithms are needed now more than ever. Programming languages come and go, but the core of programming--algorithms and data structures--remains the same.
