Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

10.0 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

10.0 / 10
This course was last updated on 12/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

10.0 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (5.0/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

9.8 / 10
Video Score: 10.0 / 10
The course includes 18h 56m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
Detail Score: 9.4 / 10

The top online course contains a detailed description of the course, what you will learn and also a detailed description about the instructor.

Extra Content Score: 9.9 / 10

Tests, exercises, articles and other resources help students to better understand and deepen their understanding of the topic.

This course contains:

3 articles.
72 resources.
0 exercise.
0 test.

Table of contents


Almost all other courses focus on knowledge. In this course, we focus on gaining real skills.

•The course covers a good subset of algorthmic topics
•Learn the inner details of the algorithms and their time & memory complexity analysis
•Learn how to code line-by-line
•Source code and Slides and provided for all content
•An extensive amount of practice to master the taught algorithms (where most other content fails!)

Content of this part
•Online Judges and How to use
•Recursion: Basics Review
•Complexity Analysis (Part 1)
•Sorting: Insertion, Selection and Count
•Binary Search: Basic and generalised forms
•Graph Representation
•Graph DFS
•Graph BFS
•Graph Topological Order
•Extensive practice on these subjects

Philosophy of the course 2 parts:
•The first part focus on topics that are more common in interviews
•The first part focus on topics that require less proving skills. This allow you to sharpen problem-solving skills more first
•In the next part we proceed toward other important topics in the Algorithms field.

Teaching Style:
•Instead of long theory then coding style, we follow a unique style
•I parallelize the concepts with the codes as much as possible
•Go Concrete as possible
•Use Clear Simple Visualization

By the end of the journey
•Solid understanding of Algorithms topics in C++
•Mastering different skills
•Analytical and Problem-Solving skills
•Clean coding for algorithms
•With the administered problem-solving skills
•You can start competitive programming smoothly
•A strong step toward interviews preparation

•Programming Skills:
•Strong Programming skills
•Solving a lot of basic problem-solving problems on fundamentals
•Good understanding for basic recursion (E.g. Fibonacci)
•STL, especially Vectors, map/set, unordered map/set
•Highly Preferred: 
•Do programming projects
•Finish a descent data structure course (extensive data structure practice)

About the Instructor (relevant experience): I was ICPC Finalists in 2010 where algorithms and data structures are the key to success. Learning the exact inner details of these algorithms and how to build real experience compare to others is an important key. For more about me, visit my website.

Don’t miss such a unique learning experience!

You will learn

✓ Practice 90 problems to sharpen problem-solving and algorthmic skills
✓ Expose yourself to many algorithmic techniques
✓ After the course, a smooth experience to prepare for coding interviews
✓ Short and well written codes


• Strong programming background
• Solved several practice during a programming course
• STL, especially vector class. Others include: set, map and hash table
• Optional but recommended: Implement long programming projects
• Highly recommended: Attended a strong data structure course first and solved a lot

This course is for

• People who want to master a critical CS component
• People who want to prepare for interviews, then Algorithms is a must step before interviews preparations

The most critical difference between my courses and others is … going beyond knowledge: With me, you get really skilled. The extensive amount of quizzes, practices, homework, and [real] projects ranging from easy to hard will reshape your skills.

I have been teaching, training, and coaching for many students in Computer science and competitive programming.

I had been competing in ICPC programming competitions 2005-2011 (ranked 3rd/2nd/2nd in regional ACMC ICPC and World Finalist in 2011). After that, I played roles such as contestant, coach, problem setter, judge, and chief judge.

In addition, I have a mix of experience in Software Engineering, AI/Computer Vision Research, and Algorithms Design. I am a Ph.D. holder from  Simon Fraser University in Canada.
