About this course


When you create real-world applications, the ability to store information in your program code is critically important.  In this course, you will learn how programming languages make use of various data structures to hold this information.  For example, storing a list of values for countries.   You ill learn how C# provides a plethora of data structures from simple arrays to more complex structures that permit the use of “typing”.  Generics is a concept that C# uses to allow the representation of objects in your data structures to apply “typing”, making it easier to work with specific data types.

Even though most programming languages today implement their own versions of sorting and searching algorithms, these examples still provide you with a solid foundation for understanding the logic behind these algorithms and can shed light on how to implement your own algorithms in later programs.  Not to mention the fact that they are also some of the most common algorithms used in interviews for programming jobs.

This course will provide you with a solid foundation in the use of data structures and algorithms using the C# language.

What you'll learn

  • C# simple and complex data structures
  • How to implement the various data structures in C#
  • How to implement sort and search algorithms in C#
