Base.cs Podcast Play Button Pause Button

Big O Notation can be scary. But it doesn't have to be! We unpack this popular cs topic and show you how to use it to evaluate different data structures (like linked lists!) and make better programming decisions. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "What’s a Linked List, Anyway? [Part 2]". A huge thank you to Twilio for sponsoring this season of the show!

Call the Base.cs Podcast Hotline

We set up a hotline using Twilio and we want you to leave us a note! In episode 6, we talk about a few real world examples where you might only want to add values at the beginning of your list. Can you think of any others? Text or call us at 240-650-9856 to share your real world example. We'll share our favorites on the pocdast, and if we pick yours, you'll get a hand drawn post card from Vaidehi!
