Data Structures and Algorithms in CPP(C++) and Python

It's a Series on Data Structure in CPP and Python Programming language.

Data structures & Algorithms are an essential part of programming. It comes under the fundamentals of computer science. It gives us the advantage of writing better and efficient code in less time. It is a key topic when it comes to Software Engineering interview questions so as developers, we must have knowledge of Data Structure and Algorithms

Data Structure and Algorithm in CPP and Python

Data Structure

In computer science, a data structure is a data organization, management, and storage format that enables efficient access and modification.


An algorithm is a set of instructions that are used to accomplish a task, such as finding the largest number in a list, removing all the red cards from a deck of playing cards, sorting a collection of names, figuring out an average movie rating from just your friend's opinion

Algorithms are not limited to computers. They are like a set of step-by-step instructions or an even a recipe, containing things you need, steps to do, the order to do them, conditions to look for, and expected results.

Introduction to C++

C++ is an extension of the C programming language which supports the creation of classes, hence known as “C with classes”. It is used to create high-performance applications and provides us with a high level of control over computing resources.

Introduction to Python

Python is an open-source (free) programming language that is used in web programming, data science, artificial intelligence, and many scientific applications. Learning Python allows the programmer to focus on solving problems, rather than focusing on syntax.

C++ for for competitive programmin

C++ is by far the most popular language of choice for competitive programmers across the world as it is usually faster than Java and Python, and most of the resources are available in C++. C++ also has a vast library called STL(Standard Template Library) which makes life a lot easier for competitive coders

Python for competitive programming

One of the reasons to choose python is that it radically cuts short the time you spend writing code, rather you spend time thinking about the logic that is needed for the question. Because in this kind of competition time is the key, faster the programmer able to write the solution better it is
