Coursera Course on Algorithms
Yesterday I signed up for a Coursera course called Divide and Conquer, Sorting and Searching, and Randomized Algorithms. This is my weakest link in the technical interview process so learning it now is as much about building my self confidence as it is being a better developer.
So far in the first part of the lecture I had that sense of panic,
“Oh god I’ll never be able to understand this. I’m too rusty on math!”
followed by the,
“Oh hey I think I understood that!”
The algorithm designer mantra of “Can I do better?” is pretty much my life mantra so while this is how I expect the rest of the course to go, I know it’ll get better (or at least I will.)
