This 8-week plan aims to provide a strong foundation in data structures and algorithms:
Week 1: Basic Data Structures and Introduction to Algorithms Week 2: Advanced Data Structures and Searching Algorithms Week 3: Sorting Algorithms Week 4: Graph Algorithms Week 5: Dynamic Programming Week 6: Greedy Algorithms Week 7: Backtracking and Trees Week 8: Final Review and Mock Interviews
After completing the plan, continuous learning and practice are encouraged, including solving problems on platforms like LeetCode and HackerRank, participating in coding competitions, and staying up-to-date with trends in algorithms and data structures.
Extra topics to enhance knowledge and skills in computer science and software engineering include advanced algorithms, advanced data structures, system design and architecture, concurrency and multithreading, networking and communication protocols, databases and query optimization, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and security and cryptography. Resources such as books, online courses, articles, and video lectures can help deepen understanding in these subjects.
