Course Description

Almost all programs deal with data of some kind. Frequently that data will be lists of items, such as movies, test scores, or even vehicles. All programming languages have multiple ways to handle these collections of items. In this course, your instructor will show you some examples of the different types of collections. At the end of the course, you'll be able to select the appropriate type of collection to use in a given scenario. This course is not focused on any one specific computer language: your instructor may use examples from JavaScript, C#, Python, and several other languages.
