Introduction to Algorithms & How It Improves Your Life + Career

By ·SVP Engineering at appssavvy

First, this is not a typical algorithms class. The word 'algorithm' may seem applicable to mathematicians and engineers, but in reality it is an essential part of our everyday life.

Just think about your day so far - if you have taken an elevator, rode a subway, visited Facebook, played cards, drove, shopped for grocery, checked in on Foursquare, waited for a cab, algorithms are already working in your life!

And if you want to move up in your career, be more efficient and effective at work, create more meaningful connections in life, and improve business strategy, you will want to learn about algorithms and the critical thinking behind it that makes it so powerful and useful.

In this class, we will learn 3 key things:

  1. Why are algorithms important?
  2. Where do alogirthms already apply in our lives?
  3. What are the 5 algorithmic approaches to solving any problem?
I want you to walk away and understand how you can apply algorithmic + critical thinking to improve your personal and professional life.
 
See you soon!
