**Book Grokking Algorithms PDF** is a fully illustrated, friendly guide that teaches you how to apply common algorithms to the practical problems you face every day as a programmer. You’ll start with sorting and searching and, as you **build up your skills in thinking algorithmically**, you’ll tackle more complex concerns such as **data compression** and **artificial intelligence**. Each carefully presented example includes helpful diagrams and fully annotated **code samples in Python**.

**Learning about algorithms** doesn’t have to be boring! Get a sneak peek at the fun, illustrated, and friendly examples you’ll find in **Grokking Algorithms** on Manning Publications’ YouTube channel.

Purchase of the print **book** includes a **free** eBook in **PDF**, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

An **algorithm** is nothing more than a step-by-step procedure for solving a problem. **The algorithms** you’ll use most often as a programmer have already been discovered, tested, and proven. If you want to understand them but refuse to slog through dense multipage proofs, this is the book for you. This fully illustrated and engaging guide makes it easy to learn **how to use the most important algorithms** effectively in your own programs.

About the Book

**Book Grokking Algorithms** **PDF** is a friendly take on this core **computer science** topic. In it, you’ll **learn how to apply common algorithms to the practical programming problems** you face every day. You’ll start with tasks like sorting and searching. As you build up your skills, you’ll tackle more complex problems like data compression and artificial intelligence. Each carefully presented example includes helpful diagrams and fully annotated code samples in **Python**. By the end of this **book**, you will have mastered widely **applicable algorithms** as well as how and when to use them.
