Leverage the power of modern C++ to build robust and scalable applications
Become an expert C++ programmer by learning how to build applications with C++ data structures and algorithms
Explore data structures, such as arrays, stacks, and graphs with real-world examples
Study the trade-offs between algorithms and data structures and discover what works and doesn't
Discover how techniques, such as bloom filters and multi-way heaps boost real-world applications
C++ is a mature multi-paradigm programming language that enables you to write high-level code with great control over the hardware. Significant pieces of our software infrastructure today, including databases, browsers, frameworks, and GUI toolkits tend to be written in C++.
The book is structured in three parts: the first part covers data structures in detail, the second part explains basic algorithm design techniques, and the third part covers advanced techniques. You'll begin with an introduction to C++ data structures and see how to store data using linked lists, arrays, stacks, and queues. The book then explains the greedy algorithms and the divide and conquer algorithms that facilitate faster computations in your programs. The book ends by showing how by using graph algorithms and dynamic programming, you can develop applications that can perform high calculations.
