## Mastering Data Structures: An Essential Skillset for Programming Students

Data structures are fundamental concepts for any software application and programming in general. It is an incredibly valuable skill set to serve you in your career. That’s why it is a great idea to start learning it in college to have time for practice and in-depth research.

## Breaking Down Complex Algorithms: A Beginner’s Guide for Students

Algorithmic logic is crucial for computer science. It might sound complex for a beginner, but it is manageable upon further inspection. It is based on the daily logic people use whether they look for the best assignment help website or the best flight ticket aggregator. Hopefully, this guide will help you start with mastering algorithms.

## Shell Sort Algorithm Implementation in C: Knuth’s and Hibbard’s Intervals

Shell Sort Algorithm sorts elements in array at a specific interval. At first, it sorts the elements that are away from each other and successively reduces the interval between them. Shell Sort is named after Donald Lewis Shell who initially wrote it in a research paper called A High-Speed Sorting Procedure.

## Top 10 Prestigious Programming Contests and Coding Competitions

This is a list of 10 most prestigious and old programming contests and challenges which you can participate and win prizes. Most of them are annual competitions but few are continuous and you can enter at any time. You can use C, C++, Java or C# .NET or any other programming language in these contests.

## C Algorithms Library

This article is about a collection of common Computer Science algorithms which may be used in C projects. The C Programming Language has a much smaller Standard Library as compared to other more modern programming languages such as Java or Python. The library provides a basic set of mathematical functions, string manipulation, type conversions, and file and console-based I/O.

## Find the middle element of linked list in C

In order to find middle element of linked list in one pass, you need to maintain two pointers, one increment at each node while other increments after two nodes at a time. By having this arrangement, when first pointer reaches end, second pointer will point to middle element of linked list.

## Free Programming Abstractions Course – SEE

Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) offers few computer science courses to students online and at no charge. Programming Abstractions course covers advanced programming topics such as recursion, algorithmic analysis, and data abstraction using the C++ programming language, which is similar to both C and Java.

## Kruskal’s Algorithm

This is the implementation of Kruskal’s Algorithm in C and C++ Programming Languages. This algorithm is directly based on the generic MST (Minimum Spanning Tree) algorithm. Kruskal’s algorithm is a greedy algorithm in graph theory that finds a minimum spanning tree for a connected weighted graph. It finds a subset of the edges that forms a tree that includes every vertex, where the total weight of all the edges in the tree is minimized.
