Practical JavaScript Data Structures and Algorithms

Key FeaturesCreate custom data structures based on project requirementsLearn to optimize code based on space and time complexityFocus more on solving the business problem and less about the technical challenges involvedBook DescriptionData structures and algorithms are fundamental building blocks of computer programming. They are critical to any problem, provide a complete solution, and act like reusable code. Using appropriate data structures and having a good understanding of algorithm analysis is key in JavaScript to solving the crisis and ensuring your application is a success. Do you want to build applications that are high-performing and fast? Are you looking for complete solutions to implement complex data structures and algorithms in a practical way? If either of these questions ring a bell, then this book is for you!You’ll start by building stacks and understanding performance and memory implications. You will learn how to pick the right type of queue for the application. You will then use Sets, Maps, and trees, and simplify complex applications using Graphs. You will learn to implement different types of sorting algorithms before gradually calculating and analyzing space time complexity. Finally, you will dive deep into increasing the performance of your application using micro optimizations and memory management.By the end of the book you will gain the skills and expertise necessary to create and employ various data structures in a way that is demanded by their project or use case.What you will learnEmploy different Algorithms based on the use case and data structure in playUse Backtracking Algorithms to encrypt messagesSimplify complex problems using graph data structure based on the application.Build a high performance caching tool using circular queuesGenerate accurate recommendations for credit card approval chances using Decision TreesIncrease the performance of an application using micro optimizationsAbout the AuthorKashyap has been an enthusiastic JavaScript developer since he first started working with it back in 2011. He has developed and worked with applications and teams of many shapes and sizes. Most of his corporate experience has been focused around building scalable web SPA for Fortune 100 companies but he has done significant work in testing the limits of JavaScript and its tooling, be it on IoT devices (Arduino, LeapMotion, AR Drones), mobile applications (PhoneGap, Ionic, NativeScript) or server side applications and scripting (NodeJS).Apart from being a JavaScript developer, Kashyap has been a JavaScript trainer for his company for over two years now in which he trains 50+ students per month. This experience has given him a chance to learn not just about JavaScript but also about the various stages of developer’s mindset and how one processes and approaches a certain situation.
