Algorithms May Be Everywhere, But the Real Trick Is In the Data Structures
Algorithms are everywhere. Whether we're aware of them or not, algorithms dominate our lives. Never mind machines - we unknowingly design algorithms that guide everything from the way we drive, to sandwich-making. Me? I claim the real magic is in a related domain called 'data structures.' A well designed data structure can transform otherwise complex operations into the trivially simple -- and I'll prove it, too, using magic!
