Course Overview

This course provides a thorough exploration of essential algorithmic techniques fundamental in programming. It covers deep understanding of big-O notation, which is a crucial concept for evaluating the efficiency and performance of algorithms, in C++, Java, and Python In this course, you’ll delve into different algorithmic strategies i.e. greedy algorithms, divide-and-conquer, and dynamic programming. Next, you will become proficient in testing and debugging the code. The solutions will be rigorously exami...
