Chris Thompson, Machine Learning Engineer, will be joining us to discuss Algorithms and Data Structures.

Instead of being seen as concepts or tools that can make a developer's life easier, new and seasoned programmers often fear and ignore data structures and algorithms. To build high-quality, scalable software and web applications or get a coveted job at a FAANG company, you must know and master these topics.

In this talk, Chris will cover:

-What data structures and algorithms are -Why you should learn them and -Materials he has found helpful in learning these topics
