This is an introductory course about algorithms and data structures. C++ is the programming language used in the course. The basics of this language will be reviewed before more difficult concepts are explored. VTC author and expert Dima Kassab will examine many topics, including: data design and implementation, primitive data structures (such as arrays and records), classes, templates, sorted and unsorted array-based lists, linked lists, doubly linked lists, stacks, queues, and binary search trees.

Hello and we'll come to this VTC course on Algorithms and Data Structures in C Plus Plus. My name is Dima Kassab and in this course you'll learn about the major data structures and operations on them. Although this course is an introductory course, it assumes you have some basic understanding of C++ programming language. But don't worry if you don't have this knowledge, we'll spend some time reviewing some C++ basics at the beginning. I'll also show you have to install a C++ editor and compiler. After that you should be ready for more advanced topics. The topics that will be covered in this course include data design and implementation, where we will talk about different design strategies, some of the primitive data structures and classes. I will also cover the major data structures including sorted and unsorted lists and link lists, stacks and queues and finally binary search tree. We'll be working on building these data structures using arrays and pointers. We will talk about the differences between both approaches and also how our algorithms to manipulate these data structures will be different. You'll also learn how to create generic data structure using C++ Templates. As we go through the course you'll notice how your skills with programming will get improved, coming up with an effective algorithm is not an easy task. But the more experience you gain the better you'll get. As I mentioned before C++ is the programming language I am using for this course and the tool I'm using to write build engine or programs is called Blocks. So this is called Blocks, notice that Code::Blocks is an IDE which is integrated development environment, that is free and open source and also it's a cross-platform. I'll provide you with a link to install this tool; I'll also introduce you to some other tools you can use. The operating system I'm working on is Windows XP; however Code::Blocks can work on different major platforms including Windows, Linux and Mac. So now after you got an idea I brought what you'll be learning in this course let's talk more about algorithms and data structures in the next video.
