Because we love Computer Science!

Highly Suggested Learning Preparation[edit]

  • If you come from a developers' bootcamp / didn't-study-Computer-Science-in-school background....., a big mistake many people like yourselves make is diving into a college-level Algorithms class first. I think it's much wiser to obtain a 500-900 page basic Data Structures Computer Science book, watch an online course on Coursera, and then augment that with the more comprehensive Algorithms course available on MIT.
  • Memorization is very important - do not believe otherwise!
  • It is extremely easy to forget this stuff unless you find a way to involve it in your everyday life (context) - always always try to find some kind of relationship between these concepts and your every day code, no matter how obscure!
