Working With Linked Lists in Python (Overview)
Linked lists are like a lesser-known cousin of lists. They’re not as popular or as cool, and you might not even remember them from your algorithms class. But in the right context, they can really shine. If you’re looking to brush up on your coding skills for a job interview, or if you want to learn more about Python data structures besides the usual dictionaries and lists, then you’ve come to the right place!
In this course, you’ll learn:
- What linked lists are and when you should use them
- How to use
collections.dequefor all of your linked list needs
- How to implement your own linked lists
- What the other types of linked lists are and what they can be used for
In this course, you’ll learn what linked lists are and when you should use them, how to use
collections.deque for all of your linked list needs, how to implement your own linked lists from scratch, and finally, how to use more advanced versions of the linked list.
00:58 Understanding how linked lists work will not only allow you to excel at job interviews but will also give you a new tool you can use to implement other data structures, such as the stack and the queue. Let’s get started.
