Course Description

In this course, offered by the University of California San Diego, students will learn about data structures and how to optimize their performance. Data structures are essential for organizing and managing large amounts of data efficiently, and this course will teach students the fundamental concepts and techniques for creating and manipulating them. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on programming assignments, students will gain a solid understanding of data structures such as arrays, linked lists, stacks, queues, trees, and graphs. They will also learn about algorithms for searching, sorting, and manipulating data within these structures. The course will also cover important programming principles and techniques for analyzing and solving problems efficiently. Students will learn how to apply computational thinking and critical thinking skills to design and implement efficient solutions. By the end of this course, students will have a strong foundation in data structures and algorithms, as well as the ability to analyze and optimize their performance. This is an intermediate level course, so some prior knowledge of computer programming and Java programming is
