Join us this Friday, April 3rd at 3pm exclusively on zoom for the next meeting of the Stats and ML Journal Club. This week, Sean McLaughlin (me) will be leading a discussion on a slightly different topic, an introduction to data structures. It will be very useful prep for any future technical interview you may have on the horizon, but I also promise there will be something in there that will make your code faster regardless!
The details of data structures are not usually accessible to people without a formal CS education, and they rarely seem directly relevant. However even if you're unlikely to implement a linked list of your own, understanding some basic concepts can give you a huge leg up when it comes to making your code faster and more efficient. Not to mention, now you'll be a pro at all those coding interviews! I'll be going over a few basic data structures and some of their properties, including but not limited to linked lists, hash maps, and binary trees.
