Why this

course rocks

This course software explores the delightful intersection of algorithms and software design. It levels up your craftsmanship by coding six different binary search algorithm. Each algorithm solution will improve your skills as a software developer, as the concepts you'll learn are applicable well outside the scope of binary search.

The course is focused on "learning by doing". The instructor Jonathan strongly believes that the real learning happens when you - the learner - write the code. So instead of him writing it for you, he'll challenge you to do it first. This is hard, and you'll struggle. But for every minute you struggle with the problem, you'll learn ten times more than you would be if you only listened to Jonathan explain it to you. So make sure you try to solve the problems before you watch Jonathans solutions.

You should have a good grasp of JavaScript before taking this course, so it's recommended that you already work as a developer, or are a bootcamp graduate. If you've got a degree in computer science, you've probably already learned most of the concepts in the course. But, of course: feel free to take the course to solidify your skills.
