Don t take it personally said Frank I don t trust anyone What *a reat introduction to data structures and some of their accompanying algorithmsThe stories *great introduction to data structures and some of their accompanying algorithmsThe stories the beginning of each chapter What a Nine Ghosts great introduction to data structures and some of their accompanying algorithmsThe stories in the beginning of each chapter the technical descriptions really easy to understandThe overall story was also engaging and at times made you want to know what soing to happen next This way the technical concepts behind each event were much less scary and dryuite surprised for the clarity this book brings into some computer science topics I hope it Las Maravillosas Obras de Dios: Historias B�blicas Para La Familia gets a seuel I have read all the books of Jeremy Kubica and I really liked this one I think that partly due to the explanations at the end of each chapter it explains the different algorithms in a fun and clear way The story and the learning materialo really شرح جامع مثنوى معنوى good together It helped me to refresh my knowledge on search algorithms as well as itave me new insights
"on how to explain them to laymen And it did all that "how to explain them to laymen And it did all that a The New Song: For the Sunday School, Societies of Christian Endeavor, and Other Religious Exercises (Classic Reprint) good detective story A nice introduction to basic search algorithms and data structures As the title suggests the information is weaved into a fiction to make the information accessible to young adults and kids However I am not sure this weaving serves the purpose cos the book did not trigger the interest of some of the kids that I knowAs for the content the treatment of the algorithms and data structures that are covered isood for an introductory level uite a few pictures along with walk throughs and no math Easy to rasp Also it can be a uick readThis could excite some kids about algorithms and data structures I picked up this book because I thought it might be helpful to use with my elementary kids It would be over their heads The story was. Meet Frank Runtime Disgraced ex detective Hard boiled private eye Search expertWhen a robbery hits police headuarters it’s up to Frank Runtime and his extensive search skills to catch the culprits In this detective story you’ll learn how to use algorithmic tools to solve the case Runtime scours smugglers’ boats with binary search tails spies with a search tree escapes a prison with depth first se. .
Technology society with wizards and effective spells The primary character is Frank Runtime and in a widely used plot device he is a disgraced former police detective that is now a hardened cynical private investigator There is a robbery at police headuarters and Runtime is recruited to hunt the perpetrators down It is another case where he can do things that are forbidden to the police As the investigation continues there are regular interludes where the algorithmic tactics employed by Runtime are explained to the reader Most of the algorithms are search algorithms and some examples are breadth first search backtracking and binary search While the explanations are thorough enough to advance the plot of a detective novel they are not enough to be part of novel they are not enough to be part of depth education program There is no mathematics that will be over the head of any reader The use of a society where technology is roughly at the middle of the eighteenth century and active magic is practiced is an amusing and uniue tactic for detective stories Therefore that aspect makes the story entertaining worthy of reading by people with little to no interest in learning algorithms A very eneral introduction to algorithmic thinking wrapped in an entertaining storyDiscusses some popular search algorithms and basic data structures Also has some interesting discussion about algorithms exploiting structure inherent in the data pairing data structures to the algorithms and adapting algorithms Very informative I strongly recommend it to anyone especially youngsters who wants to Arabian Challenge get a feeling on search algorithms Prettyood book that ives some insight into some of the in my opinion most boring concepts to learn. Ing twist to learning algorithmsFollow Frank’s mission and learn The algorithms behind best first and depth first search iterative deepening parallelizing binary search and Basic computational concepts like strings arrays stacks and ueues How to adapt search algorithms to unusual data structures The most efficient algorithms to use in a iven situation and when to apply common sense heuristic methods.
Jeremy Kubica í 3 readCheesy at best Obviously it was a bit forced to cover the different search strategies in programming However I do feel like I learned about search strategies Weird combination this is enjoyable especially if you are an IT person The CS Detective is a fun book for learning about algorithms and performance It s not language specific and is a fun book for learning about algorithms and performance It s not language specific and is easy to read The book uses a story to
Tie Together The Algorithmstogether the algorithms story is about a detective who needs to find out who stole documents It s actually a Der Verlorene Koffer: A Graded Reader for Beginning Students good storyThe analogies while introducing the algorithms are very well thought out I like the actual maze for back tracking and the array cart for transporting animals There are fun references sprinkled throughout like the Brazen Booleans want touess that type of answers they ILLERAMMA Kathalu give And the Port of USB There were also some references that are nice for parents reading this with a child Intro to Turtle Graphics The detective meets some fun characters like a wizardWhile I knew most of what was in the book I hadn t learned or had forgotten about iterative deepening so I learned something newI read this book so I could recommend it to teenagers starting out with algorithms It definitely fit the bill I think adults would enjoy it as well It s like Head First fun to read and easy to retain the info Then there s the interest too read a harder book The First Half Of first half of book is provided online by the publisher so you can decide for yourself if you like the styleDisclosure I received a review copy of this book from the publisher for reviewing it on behalf of CodeRanch This book is different in the sense that it is an unusual combination of what is performed on modern computers with a low.
