Dynamic Programming Python, Coding Interviews & Applications – Udemy

(10 customer reviews)



What you’ll learn

  • Recognize a problem that can be solved using Dynamic Programming
  • Come up with both a top down and bottom up Dynamic Programming solution using Python
  • Use Dynamic Programming for coding interview puzzles and practical applications
  • Improve your problem-solving skills and become a better developer
  • Revise your recursion knowledge

Have you ever wondered what makes a good developer? Why it is that big tech companies are increasingly asking candidates to solve challenging coding puzzles in interviews? Or why you should bother to learn about complicated algorithms?

With regards to technical skills a good developer has an understanding of computer science and knows when to apply this knowledge. Tech companies know that if someone has a good grasp of these fundamentals, she will likely be fine learning any programming language, using any new tool and solving a wide range of programming problems. As a developer comprehending data structures and algorithms you’ll be better equipped to tackle some of the more difficult problems both in your day-to-day job and for coding interviews.

Dynamic Programming is a topic in data structures and algorithms. It covers a method (the technical term is “algorithm paradigm”) to solve a certain class of problems. In this course we will go into some detail on this subject by going through various examples. The course is designed not to be heavy on mathematics and formal definitions. Instead you will learn through practical everyday programming algorithms and through some coding interview puzzles. We present a method to recognize problems that can be solved using dynamic programming and then build an efficient solution through small gradual steps.

In addition, you will also learn how to gamble professionally, how to be an air traffic controller and how to become a serious writer.*

*Not really… but hey it’s hard to make Dynamic Programming sound exciting…

All code in this course can be found on github, username/project: cutajarj/DynamicProgrammingInPython

At the end of the course we have a small coding exercise to test your knowledge.

Who this course is for:

  • Self taught developers who are looking to up their game and become better developers
  • Experienced developers wanting to learn how to apply Dynamic Programming to solve certain classes of problems
  • Developers wanting to prepare for an upcoming coding interview
  • University students struggling with Dynamic Programming

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
