Description

“Why do we need to know the algorithm?”

For those who are already working in the IT field, you may wonder why we need to know algorithms since we don’t use them in our day-to-day tasks. Not everyone working in the IT field uses algorithms, but let’s take a moment to think about why candidates applying for GAFA (Aka Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon) are always asked interview questions regarding data structures and codes.

What type of engineer do you want to be?

As you may know, Google’s search function and Tesla’s automated driving require top-quality performance and that wouldn’t be possible without exceptional algorithm efficiency. Therefore, programmers need to have the ability to write codes that can perform well. Of course, if you just want to create a small-scale web page using a simple web framework, you won’t need to know about algorithms. But services that are popular in our modern society today will face issues with scalability. At the initial stage of creating services, whether the algorithm runs properly or not may be the main issue. Still, as time progresses,  the number of data increases, and programmers will have to focus on how to process the data received promptly.

Why should I take this course?

In this course’s first half, we’ll cover the basics of algorithms and data structures using Python. In the latter half, we’ll be covering coding questions you may be asked during an actual interview. If you become familiar with the basics of Python, you’ll be able to understand the basics of algorithms from this course.  By the end of this course, we hope you feel more confident and prepared to take any coding interviews.

Happy learning!
