This week’s sorting algorithm is going to be a little different compared to the other sorting algorithms. With Radix Sort, we are not comparing two values based on: “is one greater than the other?”, instead we are sorting the data by: binary numbers and not by comparing elements.

Radix sort…


Insert

In my previous post we went over the get and set method for the singly linked list in javascript. A Singly Linked List as I mentioned in part one of this series on Linked Lists, is a data structure similar to an array. In this post we will be going…


Get and Set

Hello world, in this blog post I will continue breaking down the Singly Linked List Data Structure, specifically the get and set methods. If you don’t know what a Linked List is or what I mean when I say that we are going to be looking at new methods for…


Shifting and Unshifting

In this blog post I will continue breaking down the Singly Linked List Data Structure, specifically the shift and unshift methods. The shift method will allow us to remove the node at the beginning of the list, replacing the Head with the second item in our linked list, if there…


This week I participated in the Nurture Difference Hackathon, hosted by Cody Green. This was created as a chance for bootcamp grads and alumni to collaborate and create a portfolio level project. This was my first hackathon and I was excited to work on collaborating as it’s been a while…


Popping

In this blog post, we will continue discussing Singly Linked Lists, specifically the pop method. Note: for anyone brand new to the topic, or have no idea what a Singly Linked List is, check out my previous blog where I briefly go in depth on some basic fundamentals and how…


In this blog post we will begin to create a singly linked list. By the end, you should have a basic understanding of what a linked list is, how it is similar and different from an array, and how to begin to add elements to the end of a linked…


In previous blog posts, I’ve gone over different Data Structures as a way to deepen my understanding of these concepts for myself. At the time and currently I still consider myself a novice when it comes to understanding data structures fully, I know many by name and few by experience…


This is part of an ongoing series of blog posts where I cover sorting algorithms. This week I’m looking at Quick Sort.

It works on the same assertion that merge sort does because it is solved through recursion where we keep splitting the array until we have arrays that are…


What is a regular expression?

A regular expression is a line of code that you would commonly use as a way to search text for a specific character or group of characters matching the sequence, or meeting the parameters of the search. Simply, a regular expression is a pattern or sequence of code used when…
