re: Do you think there is a language better suited for solving data structures and algorithms? VIEW POST


Yeah, it seems like JS is more oriented around practical industry solutions. I would guess that Python is your best bet in terms of being approachable as well as rich in resources that cater to computer science topics.

Technically I think Java and C++ would have the most relevant teachings, but if you're coming from JS, there could be a pretty steep learning curve if you mostly want to focus on the concepts.

I'd love other opinions, though.

As for resources, my head immediately goes towards @vaidehijoshi 's posts. They are quite awesome looks at core DS&A CS concepts, with the most introductory stuff earlier on in the series. She does use JS in her examples, for what it's worth.
