MIT 6.006: Introduction to Algorithms


  • Offered by: MIT
  • Prerequisites: Introductory level courses of programming (CS50/CS61A/CS106A or equivalent)
  • Programming Languages: Python
  • Difficulty: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
  • Class Hour: 100 hours+

Probably the most precious course from the EECS department of MIT. Taught by Erik Demaine, one of the geniuses in Algorithms.

Compared with CS106B/X (Data structures and algorithms using C++), 6.006 emphasizes the algorithms more. It also covers several classical data structures such as AVL trees. You may use it to learn more about algorithms after CS106B/X.
