About

Data structures and algorithms are more than just theoretical concepts. They help you become familiar with computational methods for solving problems and writing logical code. Equipped with this knowledge, you can write efficient programs that run faster and use less memory.

Hands-On Data Structures and Algorithms with Kotlin book starts with the basics of algorithms and data structures, helping you get to grips with the fundamentals and measure complexity. You'll then move on to exploring the basics of functional programming while getting used to thinking recursively. Packed with plenty of examples along the way, this book will help you grasp each concept easily. In addition to this, you'll get a clear understanding of how the data structures in Kotlin's collection framework work internally.

By the end of this book, you will be able to apply the theory of data structures and algorithms to work out real-world problems.

Features
  • Learn about important data structures such as lists, arrays, queues, and stacks
  • Design custom algorithms for real-life implementations
  • Identify suitable tools for different scenarios and deliver immediate results
