|Data Structures the Fun Way (No Starch Press)|
|Friday, 18 November 2022|
This accessible and entertaining book, subtitled "An Amusing Adventure with Coffee-Filled Examples" provides an in-depth introduction to computational thinking through the lens of data structures — a critical component in any programming endeavor. Jeremy Kubica shows how to work with more than 15 key data structures, from stacks, queues, and caches to bloom filters, skip lists, and graphs.
Kubica also covers linked lists by virtually standing in line at a cafe, hash tables by cataloging the history of the summer Olympics, and Quadtrees by neatly organizing your kitchen cabinets, all while explaining basic computer science concepts like recursion and running time analysis.
