Fri, Mar 19, 2021, 5:00 PM (MDT)

This event is going to be a general overview of common sorting algorithms. We will go over different ways you can do sorting and their complexities. There is going to be a live demo of Bubble and Merge sorts.

About this event

Any successful programmer, sooner or later, needs to learn algorithms and data structures. Many interviews at tech companies like Google require you to have knowledge of these concepts. Do not hesitate to join this event to step on the way to becoming tech savvy!

This event series consists of 3 parts:

  1. Algorithms and Data Structures overview
  2. Common Sorting Algorithms
  3. Graph Traversal and Pathfinding

This series is dedicated to making you familiar with basic algorithms and data structures. During the second event, we will learn what types of sorting algorithms exist, and how some of them work. Particularly, we will do a live coding session of Bubble and Merge sorts.


  1. Basic programming concepts
  2. No prior algo or data structures knowledge required
