In this episode we talk about different paradigms and approaches to algorithmic design: the Divide and Conquer Algorithm, the Greedy Algorithm, and the Dynamic Programming Algorithm, which remembers the subproblems that it has seen and solved before so as not to repeat doing the same thing over again. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "Less R ...…
 
We continue our talk about Dijkstra's algorithm, which can be used to determine the shortest path from one node in a graph to every other node within the same graph data structure, provided that the nodes are reachable from the starting node. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "Finding The Shortest Path, With A Little Help From Dijkstra". A hu ...…
 
In this episode, we talk about Dijkstra's algorithm, which can be used to determine the shortest path from one node in a graph to every other node within the same graph data structure, provided that the nodes are reachable from the starting node. It's super important, and you'll see why when you learn about the weighted graph! Based on Vaidehi ...…
 
With the explosion of coding bootcamps, video courses, and other resources for coding, it can be tough for somebody starting out to cut the wheat from the chaff. We chat with Colt Steele, Colt Steele, developer and bootcamp instructor at Udemy, about his winding road to becoming a coder, what makes a good course, and the best way to find and le ...…
 
We end our section of the DFS algorithm with a discussion on DAGs (directed acyclic graphs), because most implementations of depth-first search will check to see if any cycles exist, and a large part of that is based on the DFS algorithm checking to see whether or not a graph is a directed acyclic graph. DAGs are also somewhat infamous in compu ...…
 
We chat with John Maeda, Chief Experience Officer at Publicis Sapient, about his journey into combining art and technology, going from working in academia to silicon valley, and his new book, “How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design For a Computational Age.” Show Links Flatiron School (sponsor) Red Hat (sponsor) MongoDB (sponsor) Publicis Sapient ...…
 
Throughout our exploration of graphs, we’ve focused mostly on representing graphs, and how to search through them. We also learned about edges, the elements that connect the nodes in a graph. In this episode, we look at the different classifications of edges and how, in the context of a graph, edges can be more than just “directed” or “undirect ...…
 
We chat with Tim O'Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media, about what we’re doing wrong and what we’re doing right with teaching programming today, and how we need to make coding more inclusive for more than just career developers. Show Links Flatiron School (sponsor) Red Hat (sponsor) MongoDB (sponsor) O'Reilly Media The Whole Internet User's Guide ...…
 
Last episode, we talked about traversing through a graph with the depth-first search (DFS) algorithm, which helps us determine one (of sometimes many) paths between two nodes in the graph by traversing down one single path until we can't go any further, checking one child node at a time. Now we talk about how you code BFS and what tools might y ...…
 
You can be an amazing developer, but a terrible manager. We chat with Lara Hogan, former VP of Engineering at Kickstarter, co-founder of Wherewithall, a company that coaches and levels up managers, and author of the new bestselling book, Resilient Management, about her background going from web developer to manager, why becoming a manager isn’t ...…
 
We ended last season by starting our discussion of searching, or traversing, through a graph with breadth-first search (BFS). The breadth-first search algorithm traverses broadly into a structure, by visiting neighboring sibling nodes before visiting children nodes. Now we begin our new season with depth-first search (DFS), which also helps us ...…

For all of the benefits of open source, such as pushing innovation and creating huge collaborative ways to build powerful products, there are also very legitimate concerns in terms of sustainability, exploitation of new developers, and the privilege of who actually has the time and resources to contribute to open source. We chat with Katie Delf ...…
 
Ageism in tech has been an open secret in Silicon Valley for years. We spoke with Ariana Tobin, engagement editor at ProPublica, and co-author of the investigative piece "Cutting 'Old Heads' at IBM," about what ageism in tech really looks like, and allegations of ageism against the tech giant. Show Links Flatiron School (sponsor) Red Hat (spons ...…
 
In this episode, we start our discussion of searching, or traversing, through a graph with breadth-first search (BFS).

The power of using breadth-first search to traverse through a graph is that it can eas ...…
 
In this episode, we continue our discussion of representing graphs with adjacency lists -- a hybrid between an edge list and an adjacency matrix, which we learned about last episode! They are also the most popular and commonly-used representation of a graph. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "From Theory To Practice: Representing Graphs". A h ...…
 
Graphs come from mathematics, and are nothing more than a way to formally represent a network, which is a collection of objects that are all interconnected (this is all stuff you should already know if you have been religiously listening to this podcast, which you should be). Now we're going from theory to practice and talking about how to repr ...…
 
The Pragmatic Programmer was published in 1999 by software engineers Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas, and is considered to be one of the quintessential books on programming. For its 20th anniversary edition, we chat with Andy and Dave about the book’s impact, what’s changed in the new edition, and what remains the same, along with things they’ve lear ...…
 
In last episode, we talked about 2-3 trees, where the nodes of every tree contain data in the form of keys, as well as potential child nodes, and can contain more than one key. This takes us to b-trees, which is a generalized version of the 2-3 tree, and are super efficient for storing data in an indexed database, like MySQL. Based on Vaidehi J ...…
 
At the time of this recording, the New York Times released a report titled "As Cameras Track Detroit’s Residents a Debate Ensues Over Racial Bias," which discussed some of the issues in machine learning such as algorithmic bias, and facial recognition software giving more false matches for black people than white people. We chat with Nashlie Se ...…
 
We continue our discussion of tree data structures with 2-3 trees, where the nodes of every tree contain data in the form of keys, as well as potential child nodes. Not only that, but it can contain MORE THAN ONE KEY. They are also the -key- to what we'll be talking about next episode, B-trees, and you won't tree-lieve how cool those are. Based ...…
 
GitHub cited Java as one of the most popular coding languages in 2018, and there is a reason why this language has stood the test of time.

In this episode, we are looking at a different type of self-balancing tree: red-black trees. By following four very important rules while we paint our tree red and black, we can make it not only self-balancing, but also make it run super efficiently in logarithmic time. Based on Vaidehi Joshi's blog post, "Painting Nodes Black With Red-Black Tr ...…
 
No matter how good of an idea you have for a product, if the design isn't executed well and people don't like the interface, the product might as well not even exist. To talk about the importance of good user interfaces and design, we brought in Mina Markham, senior engineer at Slack and creator of the Pantsuit User Interface for Hilary Clinton ...…
 
Last episode, we learned about AVL trees, a type of self-balancing binary search tree that follows a golden rule: no single leaf in the tree should have a significantly longer path from the root node than any other leaf on the tree. In this episode, we learn about a pattern that we can use to programmatically figure out the minimum number of no ...…
 
It's been an open secret in the tech world for a long time that workplace burnout is a real issue. One of the reasons why it persists is the general stigma around mental health and not having open discussions about it. And only just this year, in May 2019, the World Health Organization finally made it an official medical diagnosis. We chat with ...…
 
When you're dealing with data structures like trees, the balance of its "leaves" (data/nodes) matters. The moment a tree becomes unbalanced, it loses its efficiency, much like a real life tree bending to the weight of one side, unable to efficiently stand tall and grab the light of the sun. Don't let your garden grow full of lopsided saplings, ...…
