- Implement linked lists, double linked lists, stack, queues, and priority queues using PHP
- Work with sorting, searching, and recursive algorithms
- Make use of greedy, dynamic, and pattern matching algorithms
- Implement tree, heaps, and graph algorithms
- Apply PHP functional data structures and built-in data structures and algorithms
PHP has always been the the go-to language for web based application development, but there are materials and resources you can refer to to see how it works. Data structures and algorithms help you to code and execute them effectively, cutting down on processing time significantly.
If you want to explore data structures and algorithms in a practical way with real-life projects, then this book is for you.
The book begins by introducing you to data
