Algorithmic Problems in Java with Common Interview Questions (Recursion, Backtracking and Divide and Conquer Algorithms)
What you'll learn
- Understand recursive approaches
- Understand backtracking
- Understand dynamic programming
- Understand divide and conquer methods
- Implement 15+ algorithmic problems from scratch
- Improve your problem solving skills and become a stronger developer
This course is about the fundamental concepts of algorithmic problems focusing on recursion, backtracking, dynamic programming and divide and conquer approaches. As far as I am concerned, these techniques are very important nowadays, algorithms can be used (and have several applications) in several fields from software engineering to investment banking or R&D.
