BaseCS: Tree Traversal

vaidehijoshi profile image Vaidehi Joshi ・1 min read

Today's episode of BaseCS explores tree traversal!

We'll learn about what it means to search through a tree, and see how the order of traversal through a tree can change the way that we visit every node in the data structure. Finally, we'll investigate the two strategies for visiting all the nodes in a tree structure: breadth-first search and depth-first search.

Tree traversal is all over the place in effectively displaying threaded comment sections. Probably one of the most computer-sciency common UI elements around.
